Hello friends and welcome to another wonderful sketch challenge at Waltzingmouse! I had so much fun with this sketch, I can't wait to see what you come up with -
I made this card for Cathy who organized a wonderful card exchange this year! It was so fun to actually make and send a card to someone since I make so many cards that hardly ever get sent!

I started off with some great metallic background paper and then layered a couple of die cut circles that I stamped with the holly image from Festive Foliage. I added a doily, some red satin ribbon, and a gold button to finish it off. I really like how the red and gold work together and I don't use them as much as I should!

Have a great day and a wonderful weekend! I'm excited to be able to volunteer at a holiday party for a local women's shelter today and then I think we're getting and decorating our tree! It will be nice for it to finally feel a bit Christmassy around the house! :)

Supplies: Stamps - Festive Foliage (WMS), DP (my stash), Ink - Gold (Encore), Garden Green (SU!), Cardstock - Select White (PTI), Doily (Wilton), Stickles, Ribbon (Crafta), Button (my stash), Dies (Spellbinders), Cuttlebug
