Sweet Sunday Holidays

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC210.

I can't believe it's already March and I haven't even started on my Christmas cards for this year. Sheesh…I'm such a slacker! Well all that changes today since I decided this week's sketch was perfect for a quick and easy Christmas card. This is officially card #1 for Project Christmas 2014.

There's not much stamping on this card, only the sentiment, which is from Snowflake Splendor. I stamped it with Steel Grey ink because I wanted it to be slightly muted like the other colours in the card, instead of being stark black.

The patterned papers are from the Authentique Tradition bundle and I used the Pretty Poinsettia Die-namics to cut out the flower and leaves.

Have you started on your Christmas cards for this year? It definitely makes it easier to create some all year long. I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
