Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 242

Good morning!!  It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  Want to play along?  Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of this post to enter your card. Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC242 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I guess it's time to start thinking about Christmas cards, wow!  I picked up some new items from My Favorite Things and some old patterned paper and made a quick card.  I love this peek-a-boo tree!

I cut out a piece of Smooth White card stock with the largest Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-namics and then cut out the Christmas Tree Cutout Die-namics (free this month!) in the center.  The ornament paper was so perfect for the tree, so I let it do all the talking.  I added a little JOY banner with a Razzle Berry button in the corner.

That's it for me, but the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have a lot more for you to see.  Hop on over and be inspired:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
