The Stamping Shack Challenge "Sketch"

Hello bloggers :-)

I wanna share my card I've made for

Ive used this sketch by Mary Pat Siel.

I've gone a bit crazy... I know I know.. Its only April... So what am I gonna show you... YEP... A Christmas card lol..

In my book its never to early to start preparing. We send a huge amount of christmas cards each year and as I prefer to handmake them all, I find starting early is essential.

I just knew I wanted to work with this image the minute I saw it.. Its so cute, yet without being tooo cute.. And I knew strait away that I wanted traditionally colours to go with it. Yet I wanted to keep it fresh. I think I managed to pull it off and find that it is not too overly christmassy, for this time of the year..

This image is called "Carol Singers" and can be found in the The stamping Shack STORE.
The background paper is a freebie from a magazine.
All I added was the greeting, a few gems and the little holly up in the corner.

I hope you like what I have made.
Thank you for stopping by & for any comments left behind.
