Early Christmas card

Good afternoon bloggers,

 I have finally managed to finish my first Christmas card for 2016. Last year I took part in a Christmas card challenge submitting a card almost every month. I hope to do every month this year, but it might be a challenge as we are planning some travelling...but will see how we go.

For the 12 Months of Christmas linkup there is a sketch as an optional theme, so I decided to go with that.

This is what I used:

Paper all from my stash. I tried to use up some of my old Christmas papers and didn't buy any new but still have some to go.

Image. I won a lovely set of Christmas digis and some are precoloured as well from
Beccy's Place in a challenge last year, but didn't get round to using them, so this is the first time with these. A quickie when you don't have to colour. It is available HERE

I used 3 letters cutout with a very old set of CB dies
and a peeloff sentiment. I also added berries with a pearlmaker.

Will enter a few challenges:
12 Months of Christmas linkup...Anything goes/optional sketch
Beccy's Place...Anything goes
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas challenge extra...Anything goes
Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned paper...Anything goes
A Snowflakes Promise #14...Anything goes
Inspiration Destination #69...Anything goes
Christmas Card challenge #7...Anmything goes
C.R.A.F.T. challenge...Christmas

Thanks for visiting, please pop back soon. Take care and have a wonderful weekend.

Love Ursula

Great take on the sketch Ursula, I like that you turned it on the side. I love the soft background paper you used, the holly is beautiful and the added berries look great. It's good to see people getting a head-start on their Christmas cards. Well done!
