SFYTT, SPCC #16


It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! I have been busily prepping my teachers, daycare, neighbor gifts the last few weeks, and I see my Christmas Spirit has carried over to my cards. You'll have to bear with me for the next little bit...the challenges are a great way to get my own Holiday Cards made without a lot of fuss! ;o)
***
This card was made for two challenges, the sketch came from Jen delMuro's "I {Heart} to Stamp" Site (click here for the sketch and all the other fabby entries http://iheart2stamp.com/2009/09/19/sketch-for-you-to-try-29/ ), and the colors come from Samantha's SPCC Site (click here for the color swatch and to see the other beautacious entries http://spcolorcombos.blogspot.com/2009/09/spcc16.html ). I love how these colors are totally nontraditional Christmas colors, yet, the cool, crisp way they come together really look great in a card with snowflakes! Also, stay tuned for another variation of the sketch...I really altered it for an upcoming post (so much so that I'm not sure if I'll submit it to Jen, but it's still needing a link to the original sketch), as the original sketch totally inspired me!
