His Beard Was as White as Snow - Let's Get Sketchy Blog Hop LAURA

Here's another sketch done for the Let's Get Sketchy 2 year anniversary blog hop. This sketch challenge is hosted by Laura, and her twist with the sketch was to add wood grain to the layout (wood embellishments, wood grain paper).

Here's the sketch:

And here's my take on the sketch:

At first I wasn't sure how I was going to handle the chicken wire stamping/etc., but then I found this hexagon/honeycomb paper in my Heidi Swapp Christmas paper pack and instantly I knew what I wanted to do! So I cut some out and cut out a couple of the other sayings and added them to the page instead of flowers. And for the twist to use wood/wood grain, I have some wood grain on the journaling card and some Studio Calico wood veneer stars on my page.

I was also inspired by a current challenge over at A Cherry On Top. This month Joannie is our Guest Designer, and one of her challenges is encouraging us to use one of several phrases from Shakespeare to use as a title. "His Beard Was as White as Snow" was on the list, and of course is perfect for a page about visiting Santa!
