Sketch @ Christmas Card Challenges

Mornings all :) 
It is that time ... time for a new challenge at 

This week the challenge is ... 
A Sketch
The challenge theme is optional, the only real rule is you must create a new Christmas Holiday, winter or Hanukkah card / creation.

 And this is my take on the sketch this week!

Been playing with those darn TH Distress inks again lol!  The papers are all from my stash and scraps, the flag bunting is left over from the monochromatic Christmas tree I made last week, the star embellies are handmade, the flower is a mini Kaiser bloom and the sentiment / image is from Whimsy Stamps.  I also could not resist taking a needle and thread to this creation and adding a touch of stitching. 

We would love you to play along with us at 
I hope I see you there :) 
Thanks for dropping in to see me today :)
