Sketch plus Color

Happy Saturday everyone! I just hate it when I get so behind. I usually save Fridays for making layouts but yesterday I had a chiropractic appointment & I had to rest after that. My layout for Lets Get Sketchy was made late last night. I had to wait until today to take a picture of it & its cloudy today. We are suppose to get freezing rain. Looks like I will be hibernating in my scrap room today.  Here is the sketch & plus they put a color combo with it this time round.

Here is my layout.

White, Green & Red Cardstock
Christmas Paper & small red flowers from swap
Basic Grey-Paper & fabric Christmas circles
Little Yellow Bicycle- Round chipboard elements
Pink Paislee- Artisan Elements border
Recollections- Green & Gold Brad
Bazzill- Red jewels & green leaves
Teresa Collins- Christmas Home & Christmas Cottage flowers, borders & journaling circle
Me & My Big Ideas- Green icons
My Mind's Eye- Decorative Brad
Tim Holtz- Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Adirondack- Gold Acrylic Paint Dabber

 I used the MME brad to hold the layers of flowers together & glued the leaves underneath. I applied the jewels to the center of the other flowers. 

 I painted the edges of the red cardstock, the points on the journaling circle, the snowflake border & the element to the left of the photo with a paintbrush & the gold paint.

I tried to use the dabber like it is suppose
be used on the snowflake border but I
had a problem. Picture below.
I think the top was clogged & it just spurted out
around the rim so I had to use it up somehow.

  Have a Great rest of the weekend!
Happy Scrappin!
