Christmas in Feb!

I made it through January with a Xmas card each week and now February begins. And here is my first card for this month:

This card is for the sketch challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. Here is the sketch that Danielle set for us:

I have actually used a stamp from the summer set of stamps 'relax' by Verve. It is a 2 layer stamp with a bold and outline image. I am actually quite chuffed with myself about this because I saw the stamp early this week and knew I wanted to use it for this sketch and just played around and came up with a snowflake shape out of my Summer stamp! Isn't it great when something works like this! I added a few gems to keep the card CAS as I loved the clean look of the design and didn't want anything to over power it.

And just for Ruth ,who is on the DT, I decorated the inside:

So week 1 of Feb done!

Have a good evening my friends x

  6. Wowsers, what a fabulous card Sandie! Love the bright festive combo and it was brilliant to choose a summer stamp and make it a snowflake! A great take on the sketch challenge, you kept to a perfect CAS design! Look at you decorating the inside as well - I am SO impressed - it looks lovely!
