Sketch Friday at CSAYL - Challenge #59

Happy Friday to you! Thanks for stopping by for Christmas Stampin' All Year Long's challenge! It's a good one - I LOVE sketches and Maria always has such fabulous ones! That's right this week our challenge is to create a HOLIDAY CARD using the fabulous SKETCH below!


I rotated mine to accommodate one of my favorite stamp sets, Winter Tags by The Angel Company.

Who can resist such cute snowmen? I used a little Icicle Stickles for the snow and snowflakes - I think it turned out WONDERFUL!! EXACTLY the look I wanted to achieve (love it when that happens, don't you?)

I always pick my DP and then color and design around that. It's just easier for me. This time though I had a hard time finding matching cardstock. When I tried black cardstock, I liked the way everything just "popped" so I went with it :)

I hope you will join us - you do know that Christmas is 6 months away, right? Might as well get started now so you beat the holiday rush and stress! Stop by the CSAYL blog and see all the details for this weeks challenge, link your creation and see the other fabulous creations done by the DT. Remember if you play along, you could win a guest DT spot - so come on...JOIN US!!

My first thought was "great card" and then "Christmas is only 6 months away?!" But then I realized it is only 5 months away-better get going on those cards!
