I'm on a roll with my Christmas cards the last few days! It has been so unbelieveably hot here lately, anything that helps me think about cool weather is helpful.
I made this card for a sketch challenge on the CK/PaperCrafts message board this week. My dear friend Susan created this sketch and I think it's so cute. I totally CASEd her sample card - except she did a birthday card. I did use her idea of the three different images to fit a theme. I had these three small House Mouse Christmas stamps that fit the sketch perfectly. I added Stickles to each of the images and embellished the card with ribbon and three red gems. Susan's original sketch has a sentiment in the lower right corner, but I couldn't find a stamp that was fitting the space right and didn't want to take the time to print on on the computer. I used the little bow instead.
This is such a great sketch - so cute and simple the work with. I'm definitely going to be using it for other cards later.
