2012 Christmas Card Challenge Week #18

Hello everyone,

I appreciate all of the cards, and kind thoughts.  Even though everyday is difficult, I have decided that I need to do something that makes me happy, rather than sit and stare at the TV.  I know time will heal, but hopefully being distracted by crafting will help.

I have a new Christmas card for you today.  The challenge this week is a sketch, created by our dear Peggy.  For all of the details, click HERE.

Here is the card I created, based on the sketch.

You know how I am about non-traditional Christmas colors, and this card is no exception.  I got the color combo from the photo below.

I love how it turned out.  It's a bit smaller than a normal A2 card, but I think I'm going to use it as a card for a gift come Christmas time.  I've combined the following challenges as well.

Stampin For The Weekend #6 - Anything Goes
Alphabet Challenge Blog - D for Dry Embossing
Mark's Finest Papers #101 - Square Card
52 Christmas Card Throwdown - Anything Goes

I hope you'll head over to see what our lovely design team, and new guest designer, have created for you today.  They're all pretty fabulous, as usual.

Stay crafty my friends!
