Merry Christmas Dear Friend - Caardvarks Sketchfest Saturday

Today is the last day for the Caardvarks Sketchfest and this card is based on the final sketch created again by the wonderfully talented Heidi Van Laar. I am pretty pleased that I was able to complete each of the seven sketch challenges. When I first saw this sketch, I had ideas for a Halloween card, but I couldn't quite put it together and so I switched gears and remembered that I wanted to get a jump start on my Christmas cards this year, so this is what I came up with......



Cardstock, stamps, ink, ribbon, patterned paper, curly label punch: Stampin' Up!
Branch punch: Martha Stewart
Circle and scallop circle: Spellbinders Nestabilities
Other: Cuttlebug and Snowflake embossing folder, Crop-A-Dile, Ranger Glossy Accents
