Sweet Sunday Joy

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC153. No surprise here...I created a Christmas card, which is card #10 for Project Christmas 2012.

I used Inspired by Christmas from My Favorite Things and kept this card pretty simple and it was relatively quick too. I stamped the image with versamark ink onto kraft card stock and embossed it with vanilla powder. I used the skyline border Die-namics for the horizontal layer and the patterned paper is My Mind's Eye The Merry Days of Christmas.

I had to add a flower embellishment, which grew into three flowers, which were all cut out using the smallest bloom in the Upsy Daisy Die-namics. The flowers are cut from two of the papers from the Christmas paper pack.  I added a cream brad to the center of each and tucked a few leaves around the edges, also cut out with the Upsy Daisy Die-namics.

I hope you'll play along 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 came up with.

That Santa image is fantastic! I can't believe you have 10 Chirstmas cards done already...I can't stamp anything but spring and bright colors right now. I'm ready for the Non-winter to be over. So glad I was able to play alongside you and the Sweet Sunday Sketch crew. You girls are some pretty awesome card makers!
