52 CCT Sketch Challenge

Over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown we have a sketch challenge for you.


You can use any label or embellishment you like and we can't wait to see your festive creations! Please have a look at the fantastic cards made by the rest of the design team. 

My card uses a tree die-cut that came with a magazine and has been hanging around for a while in my stash. I used the retired SU Lacy Brocade embossing folder to make the background, applying white ink to the folder before I embossed the card. I added some Crumb Cake ribbon and buttons as my embellishment. This is such a versatile sketch that I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's amazing cards! April x
