Noel- WMSC118!!

My first card for the Christmas Season using this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch. The sketch this week is by the very talented Sarah Martina Parker and it's a lovely one!!              .

Have you ever sat down to make a card totally thinking you were going to use a certain stamp etc. and then, when you started things changed??























Don't you just love the look of black on craft... I do!! The tree and flourish on the half circle are from Waltzingmouse Stamps Nutcracker Sweet and the sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps Say It Loud Winter Holiday. The die at the top is the negative of a PTI die. Papers are from MME's All is Bright collection. Colored the little hearts on the tree with a copic and added some bling from Pizzazz APlenty. Seam binding bow {Ribbon Carousel} and twine with bells finished it off. Eeeks.... my first bells of the season!!

















Thinking I'll be using this sketch again {well, there are lots of WMS sketches to use again!!}

Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate when you do and please leave a comment... love all the kind words!!

I absolutely adore black on kraft....
simply perfect!
And Christmas means jingle bells...
I'm dying to get into mine!
I think I'm done with Halloween for this year...
maybe it's time to pull out the Christmas just so I can use some jingles! :)

Is that a super-sized tree? It's so fab, Vickie! Love it on the kraft with the little green accents. And oh those jingle bells! Christmas cards almost don't even count unless the jingle, hee!
