If its Monday morning, it must be...

Time for a FABULOUS new sketch at 
The is a great all-purpose sketch--lots of possibilities. However, right now, I am all about the Christmas card, so here's my take:

Rotated the sketch, used a tag for the central layer and tucked the ribbon under rather than over the tag.I had fun embossing that delicious Ho-ho-ho message, then colouring it with markers to match the papers. 

The Sparkle and Shine paper (grey) has little shiny silver polka dots--subtle but pretty.
The best accidental find was border punching the red shimmer tape. I was left with all these sparkly little circles. Some ended up on and inside this card, and others you will see in future posts. They also ended up on the carpet, in the bedroom, you name it!

Back to the sketch:  You have all week to concoct your own interpretation of this sketch. Link it up to the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge by Sunday night. We love to see your creations!
I have my own challenge for you this week:  post a project and invite a friend to the Atlantic Hearts sketch challenge. For every friend who posts, I will enter your name that number of times into a random drawing for the stamp set I used here. Mention this challenge in your post, then come back here to THIS post and tell me you linked up, and include your friend's name so I can check THEIR post. Whew! Sounds like a lot of back-and-forth but it will be fun!

Happy crafting,
