Sketchy Christmas

Hi, I have just found this Christmas Card Challenge,   52 Christmas Card Throwdown. Do take a look, there is still time to enter this challenge.

This week it is a sketch, and such a useful sketch for so many ideas.

Using the colours and photograph as inspiration

My design includes a background stamp from Waltzingmouse stamps and the Christmas Eve montage, with Santa in his sleigh, uses stamps from Clarity Stamp, die cut with a Spellbinders Label die set. I have used the forest and Santa stamps for a full card, but love how they transfer to a small section, too. The sentiment is by Justrite Stamps. My card design has photographed in a lighter shade and no pink, just blues and greens.

Thank you for visiting and reading about my design.
