Celebrate the Season

This week Sparkle has a 2-part challenge for her Christmas Card Challenge #32. The first is a fun sketch! The second is to use 1 color cardstock (not counting white), 2 stamps, 2 embellishments, and 5 pieces of paper. I did pretty well until I got to the paper... hopefully she'll let it slide this time.. :) I liked this sketch so much that I may have to make a few more for my Christmas card stash.

I was excited to pull out my Basic Grey Mistletoe and Pear pad for this one. I think it was a Michael's exclusive (that's what I remember hearing). By the time I saw it last year I already had most of my Christmas cards finished, so I didn't really get to use it much. My image is a fun one from Pink Cat Studio's Lily & Billy Winter. Sentiment is from Papertrey's 2008 Holiday Tag Collection.

Thanks for stopping by!
