Another Challenge Card

 Hey everyone.. I hope all your stockings are up, all the presents are wrapped and you are sitting back and just taking it all in.  Not me.  Stockings are not up.. presents are not wrapped and I am for sure not sitting back anywhere. 

 I was able to squeeze in another Christmas card and of course I am adding it to a few challenges.  First I had to use this weeks sketch from Pals Paper Arts - PPA124.  Take a look at this sketch.. Tell me you couldn't make a adorable card with such a sweet and simple sketch. 

On to my colors.. Visited my ole stand-by The ColourQ Challenge #15.  I'm tellin you if you need some GREAT colors as inspiration, get over to The ColourQ.  Every week they have the best palet.   I know I wanted bright and cherry colors for my card so these ended up being so perfect.

 I don't know if I am happy with this card or just ok with it.  First off there are 4 separate stamps and I put them all together to make a little scene.  I think that turned out just fine.  Tried to give some depth to it and made the sign seem to be in the back ground.  I think I accomplished that.  Santa ... well I flocked his beard and mustache, not that bad..  I think it was the puffy paint for this outfit and hat that I am not that crazy about.

 One thing I do love is my new Fiskar boarder punch I just got, of the snowflakes.  Isn't so great?

I think I will enter this into two other challenges this week. 

More Than Favors - Wacky Wednesday Challenge #61 Christmas Theme
The Cuttlebug Spot challenge this week - Santa Baby

 I better start wrapping gifts.  Maybe around March I will be able to sit back and enjoy.. LOL!
