Beate Weekend Sketch Challenge

I've had a bit of time today to work on Beate's sketch for this weekend! I LOVE Friday's and working on the sketch. The cards below are of the same sketch but look totally different. One card is your standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. The other is a 5 1/4 square.
This My Favorite Things, By The Seashore, is an awesome set! I'm so grateful to Kim for sending it to me with my last order!!! I got a little bit of a sneak peek!
Instead of having another panel in the center of the dots, I decided to go with ribbon so I didn't cover it up so much. Yesterday I got the Build-A-Brad in my SU! order! OH these things are cool! I used my 1/2"circle punch and punched out one of the circles from the DP, used a glue dot to keep it in place, then stuck the clear top on. I can see me going through a ton of these!!!
Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: By The Seashore from MFT
Cardstock: Ruby Red, Old Olive, So Saffron, WW and Misc DP
Inks: Ruby Red, Basic Black
Accessories: PrismaPencils and Gamsol, 5/8"White Grosgrain Ribbon, Build a Brad, Hemp, 1/2", 1", 1 1/4", 1 3/8" Circle Punches, Dimensionals
I'm still working on Christmas cards and probably will until December 24th! How many of you are ahead of the game this year? I am thankful that I have plenty of time to work on them. Also getting a GREAT sketch sure does help ;)
Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Star Studded Season and Snow Burst
Cardstock: Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, WW and Wintergreen DP
Inks: Soft Sky and Blue Bayou

Brian is away for the weekend. Hunting season started November 1st! So for the next month he will be gone each weekend. Wish him luck!

I love both these cards, it is amazing how the size of the card can change a look and layout. I love that MFT set, ordered mine yesterday.
