As promised, here is my Christmas card this week for Sparkle's weekly challenge. She gave us another great sketch this week.

I had another idea in mind for my card but as I was looking through my stash of non-CTMH paper, I found this paper and die cut from the Wild Asparagus line from My Minds Eye. I loved the die cut and thought, what the heck? I'll use this on my card rather than wait for when I might scrapbook Christmas pictures. You can't really tell in the picture, but I also stamped my playful flourishes stamp with versamark on the piece of red cardstock, just to bring a bit of pattern to the empty space. My finished card size is 6x6.

Patterened Paper and Die cut: My Minds Eye
Stamps: CTMH Playful Flourishes
Other: Versamark, PTI buttons

I hope you all have a great Sunday. Enjoy and thanks for your visit. I truly appreciate you visiting my blog.

Lovely card, Alanna. Pretty paper and a one-word, albeit powerful, message. The buttons are the perfect finishing touch.

Hope you are having a good weekend, friend!
