Sharing . . .

Happy Sunday All!

We (BFF Diane - Nellie's Nest) and I are just having so much
fun challenging each other to this & that challenge themes.
Today's card was created for a challenge that Diane chose and
it's a fun sketch over on the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge Blog.

Here's the sketch we are creating from . . .

I'm am trying my best to create a holiday card when
I get the chance because I just know that
closer to the holiday's, I'm NOT going to
have as many as I need.  Especially when I have
two craft show prior to December.

 I noticed that the new challenge over on the Memory Box Blog
is 'Keep Cool and Carry On' (winter cards) ... hence the Memory Box 'Dazzling
Snowdrift' corner die addition.  I've added red sequins to the snowflake 
centers and Diamond Stickles (though hard to see) to the stars and extensions.

Red Stickles was also added to the holly berries on Rudolph
antlers for an added touch of holiday sparkle.

 I love working with a sketch and this one was a lot of fun.
I just might have to create a few more holiday cards using this design!

The 12 x 12 paper pad I have used for the mass of my card is
by the Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby) called Remnants of the Season.

I hope you've enjoyed today's share and draw inspiration from my creation!

Be sure to pop over to Diane's blog to see what she has created
using this same sketch!  It's so much fun seeing how
different people interpret the same sketch!

This is a good sketch for using both designer paper and images. My favorite kind! Awesome that you got another Christmas card done. You'll be happy when the time comes. I keep plugging along. This is so beautiful, Darlene. Love the snowflake corner die as an additional enhancement.

I work on my Christmas cards all year 'round, Darlene, and I love it. Learnt my lesson the first year I started making cards. I was so short that I had a few of all night marathons :-) You card is lovely and festive. Love the pretty papers, the sketch and of course the beautiful Santa image.
Enjoy your evening.
