Dynamic Duos has a monochromatic color scheme this week.  I decided to combine that challenge with the current Sketch For You To Try layout.  I used the rock-n-roll technique to ink up the tree image.  I layered a grosgrain ribbon over a satin ribbon for the vertical strip in the sketch.  I added a gold star-shaped brad to the top of the tree.  Although it doesn’t show off well in the photo, in real life it adds a nice little touch of shine to the card.




All supplies except the star mini brad are from Stampin’ Up.
Stamps: Season of Joy, All-Year Cheer I
Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke, Confetti Cream, Certainly Celery Prints designer series paper
Ink: Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery
Other: Certainly Celery satin ribbon, Always Artichoke grosgrain ribbon; star mini brad (The Paper Studio)
