Sparkle Creations Christmas Card Challenge

Good morning! Today I am excited to share that I am the guest designer at Sparkle Creations Christmas Card Challenges! Initially, Sparkle started challenging herself to make 2 Christmas cards each week so that come December, she would have a great headstart on her holiday card stash. Eventually, she extended the challenge her blog readers and now she has a talented design team. I loved this idea and would try to play along as often as I could. It's been awhile since I've been able to play, though the thought often crosses my mind each Sunday.


The challenge this week is to create a vintage Christmas card (can be a Winter, Hannukah or Holiday card). I thought this sweet Santa image from JustRite Vintage Christmas was just perfect for the challenge. I colored him with Copic markers and paired him with some new My Mind's Eye (from the Holly Jolly collection). I used Mercy's latest sketch, MTSC87, for my layout - such a fun sketch.. I loved it!

Be sure to stop by the challenge blog HERE to see the rest of the designer's wonderful creations. Hope you will join us this week!
