52 CCT Sketch Challenge


At 52 Christmas Card Throwdown we are welcoming the new month with a sketch challenge. Patricia is our hostess and she has chosen this great design to inspire your festive card making.

 

I decided to use strips of washi tape to create the 'banners' topped by a little gingerbread man from SU's Scentsational Season. I have made quite a long card and have added Merry and Bright patterned paper by Pink Paislee on the ends. The Whisper White background is stamped in gold with Gorgeous Grunge and I have punched stars from champagne Glimmer Paper. The sentiment is from Good Greetings.

I hope you will take a look at the fantastic cards from the rest of the DT. We look forward to seeing your inspirational Christmas cards! April x
