Joyeux Noel

Happy Saturday, friends!! I hope you've all had a great week and are ready for another fun challenge at Waltzingmouse!! This week we have this fabby sketch from DT member, Kelly -

Part of the fun of sketch challenges, for me, is seeing all of the different variations you all take as you create from the sketch inspiration! As you can see from my card, I didn't use circles but still placed the elements in the same places (well, I guess I flipped it over, too, lol!) All that is to say, do what you want and have fun!!

I stamped two labels from the Labels 14 set, and added the sentiment from Very Vintage Christmas (the first set I ever purchased from WMS and still one of my favorites!!). I stamped the holly leaves and embossed them in silver (inspired by one of the DT recently but I can't remember who - I'm so sorry!), then added some red berries covered in chunky glitter. I finished the card with some pretty red seam binding.

Have fun and I can't wait to see what you create with this sketch! Link up by Friday and you'll have a chance to be named Top Mouse and/or win a set of your choice!! Wowza!!

Supplies: Stamps - Very Vintage Christmas, Vintage Labels 14, Festive Foliage, DP - Jolly By Golly (Cosmo Cricket), Cardstock - Select White (PTI), Ink - Basic Black, Riding Hood Red (SU!), Versamark, Glitter/Embossing Powder (Martha Stewart Crafts), Seam Binding (SU!)


  1. This is beautifully bright and fresh, love the layered labels, and the silver holly.

  2. I really like this Christmas card - the backing papers are so fresh and the sentiment label is fab!

  3. Wauw, Jen, those holly leaves look gorgeous in the silver!! Such a beautiful card and I always love to see all the takes on the challenge as well. Haven't joined in very much the past weeks... I'm sorry about that, but weeks fly by before I know it, but I do always have a look at what was created, love that! Your card is really beautiful!!!
    Hugs, Wendy
