Merry Monday #67

Back for another sketch challenge at Merry Monday!  I am really digging into the pattern paper stash for my Christmas cards lately.  Only one short week before I head out for the Close To My Heart Convention!  I can't wait to see the new Christmas stamps and papers!  I love making Christmas cards, they are my favorite!  At the moment though, I am a little tired of my current Christmas stamps.....can't wait to add some new designs to the mix!

I tore my pattern paper into a resemblance of the sketch.  Did you know that you can get a controlled tear on your cardstock by wetting it first?  I simple went over the area I wanted to tear with a waterbrush and then tore along the wet edge. 

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
C1525 Pear & Partridge Cardmaking Stamp Set
Clearly Sentimental About Christmas Stamp Set-MFT
Winterings Paper Pack-Little Yellow Bicycle
1388 Colonial White Cardstock
X5642 Cocoa Cardstock
Z2114 Cocoa Ink
Circle Stax Dies-MFT
Snow Flurry Die-SU
Retired Badge Buttons

I have entered my card in the following challenges:
Hiding in my Craft Room-Die Cuts
The Craft Garden-Color Challenge
