Two Challenges, One Card

Okay, what can I say? I like combining challenges when I can. The current challenge over at Christmas Cards All Year ‘Round is to create a card using traditional Christmas colors with a stamped or rubbed on sentiment. I figured out the papers and the image/sentiment that I wanted to use, but still was’t quite sure how I was going to pull it together. So, I went over to Sketch Saturday where they just posted a fantastic new sketch. So I combined the two inspirations to create the following card:


I need to work on the coloring a bit, but I think that I just might have to make more of this card as I really like the overall look and feel of it. Let me know what you think.
