Christmas card

With all the craziness of the holidays, I thought I would share something simple today: a card from a sketch.

I was inspired to make this card from mostly this sketch from My Mind's Eye, and a challenge to use these accordion flowers. However, I ended up combining a TON of challenges. I don't do that often anymore, but I always make notes about challenges when I see them, and then we I go to scrap I look through them for inspiration. A fun little game

that I play, is to see how many challenges I can stuff onto one card. I liked up NINE challenges for this card, but there were a few more that I just ran out of time for. (I'm not so great at keeping track of the deadlines, because I do it more for the challenge and inspiration than for the chance to win something.)

Anyway, here is the card. All the patterned papers are My Mind's Eye Holly Jolly. The sentiment sticker is SRM. Also: Twinery twine, American crafts cardstock, favorite findings buttons, sizzix embossing folder, fiskars deco scissors.

Here is the sketch:
There is still plenty of time to enter this sketch challenge, if you want. It's HERE.
