Christmas Challenge #10

Good Morning! Did you have a good weekend? We were supposed to have 9 inches of snow but only got about an inch. Still the weather was cold & yucky so I got to stay in and create!! Yippeee! I just love being able to check off tasks completed on my to-do list!

As you know it's Monday and we have another fabulous challenge over at the Stampin All Year Long Blog. We have another awesome sketch that was created from a reader's submission. This one is a fun one. When I saw it all I could think about were 5x7 or 4x9 cards but the sketch is flexible enough that you could shrink the size in order to do an A2 card (which I'm going to try next!). So here is the sketch:

and here is my card:

The stamps are from Stampendous (sentiment) and SU! (presents). The paper is something I've had for awhile so I'm not sure who the manufacturer is but I know I bought it in a pack of a whole bunch of papers. I colored the image with my Copics. I know there is a lot of color in the paper & image so I used black brads & ribbon to try and tone it down a little.

So have you started making your Christmas cards? What are you waiting for??? Thanks for looking!!
