A Snowy Christmas

Happy Memorial Day to all my stateside readers! I hope you are having a wonderful day filled with family and fun.

Today's card is for this weeks My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch challenge (MFTWSC73). It seems odd to be posting a Christmas card on a day that often signals the unofficial beginning of summer. But these sketches are a great way to jump start the Christmas card making process as one can never start too early. I started out by stamping and coloring the Pure Innocence Holiday Hugs image, then cutting out with Spellbinders Nestabilities. I added a touch of stickles here and there for a bit of sparkle. I took the liberty of shifting around some of the elements on the sketch and also made it into a square.The paper is from an older Crate Paper collection.
