RS#1: Joyful Trees

I'm  so lucky to have fallen upon Retro Sketches challenges from their very beginning! They just started up recently and I really like what they have going on over there. Their sketch this week was a great one, check it out:

Such a cool layout, I had to give it a try! Here is what I came up with. I was in the mood to do something Christmas, probably because I had told myself I'd be making at least one Christmas card a week, but that doesn't seem feasible, so a Christmas one is long overdue.

Although this is an MDS card, I have plans to turn it into a hybrid by adding dazzling diamonds glitter to the word "JOY" and to add a little bow above the Cherry Cobbler panel. Then maybe a little of the Cherry Cobbler dazzling details to the little circle spots in my trees! Yay Glitter!

If you're wondering what colour those trees are, the first to the left is Certainly Celery, then Pool Party, then Sage Shadow. Interesting how that Sage Shadow looks almost grey against the other colours.

I'm sure you're beginning to wonder if I'm ever going to present another non-digital card again. Well, I promise my next post will be!


  1. The soft transparent look is very pretty Darcie! Thanks for playing along with us in our first Retrosketches challenge!

  2. Cool Darcie - I think a hybrid project will turn out awesome! The colors of the trees are almost exactly the colors of an older DSP from SU! - I forget the name, but I loved that paper! Thank you so much for joining us for our first RetroSketch challenge!


Thanks for commenting on my post and taking a look at my blog today! I love hearing from you... :)
