As far as I am concerned, Papercrafts Go-To Sketches was worth the price for this sketch alone, not to mention all the other ones I've used and plan to use. This one, however, is my favorite.
My first stab at it is a pretty literal interpretation of the first sample in the magazine, at least colorwise. I stamped my paper using Hero Arts Designer Windows set and then punched, rather than using designer paper, however. The interplay of patterns and arrangement of colors is very close to the original.
The second version I made uses another Hero Arts set...a quarto set of snowflakes. Oh, my! This is such a versatile sketch!
Then, I made another Christmas card using some of the stamps from my first version above, a musical background stamp, and a star ornament stamp (the saffron circles).
What a fun, fun sketch! I'm not done with it yet by a long shot!
