Christmas is Right Around the Corner!

Hello Again!

Well, we are at it again!  LOL
BFF Diane (Nellie's Nest) has challenged me to participate in the
current The Paper Players Challenge and I accepted (call us crazy .. like we don't both already have a ton of things to do! lol)  But this just looked like too much fun to pass up!

Here is the sketch we are to follow ...

What do you think??

I REALLY need to get going on all the holiday cards
I am going to be needing this year so that was my choice of theme
for this fabulous sketch.  And, all the panels came from one
particular paper pad ... Carta Bella 'A Very Merry Christmas'

I used the Tutti Designs 'Stitched Nesting Tags' 
Tutti Designs - Dies - Nesting Stitched Tags
for my tag element and Baker's Twine for the embellishment.
At the last minute I spotted this  Sue Wilson 'Frosty Snowflake Border'
laying on my work table and decided to add it to the bottom.

Sue Wilson Designs - Festive Collection - Frosty Snowflake Border

 While putting my card together, I first had the panels laid out on a white card base but didn't like how it looked with this 'vintage' styled design paper so I switched to a red card base ... then I still didn't think the panels stood out enough so I decided to edge each panel with a wide tip Silver Pilot marker ... that was better!


YAY!  One more card created to add to the Christmas Card Stack!
NOW, I best get back to that long ToDo List that MUST get done today!  LOL
But, this sure was fun and I hope you'll come play along!  I love a good sketch challenge!!
