Merry Monday Sketch Challenge


I am so thrilled to be asked to be the Guest Designer over at Always Playing with Paper, home of the Merry Monday Christmas Sketch Challenge. I love makiing Christmas Cards so this Challenge Blog is perfect for me.

My card uses this weeks sketch along with the Fred She Said pre-colored English Robins, from the Christmas Birds Series.

The cardstock, bakers twine and pearls are all from Close to my Heart.

The Hand Stitching around the card was done with matching green Embroidery Floss.

Other Challenges for this card:
I did it! - Use a Digi.
My Time to Craft - Christmas
Crafty Ann's - Christmas in August
