52 Christmas Card Throwdown

  I found another Christmas Card Challenge called 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown. The challenge this week is based upon this sketch.


Here's my take.



 The most challenging part was the three tiny enbellishments on each piece of the pattern paper. I finally settled on the snowflakes. I tried a swig of  holly, ribbon, rhinestones/pearls; but nothing really seemed to work. Here's a blurry close up shot.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek. I need to get back on the Valentine track before the holiday passes me by.
