Sweet Sunday Sketch #90

Happy Sunday!!! It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!!!

Today's sketch was AMAZING to work with.. REALLY it was... I had my card whipped up in no time... which is AWESOME.. considering I started making it about an hour BEFORE it was due to be posted.. tsk.. tsk.. hahaha

So here is my card for this week:-


And here is the FABULOUS sketch:-


I've used my NEW and FABULOUS stamp set Contemp Christmas!! LOVING this set!! and MY NEW Jolly Holiday DSP.. LOVELY!!! I've also used some retired Kiwi Kiss (only because I've got a Stamp-a-Stack this week and need EVERY scrap of my Old Olive.. oops!!!) The scallop along the width of the card is Cherry Cobler and I've added some also retired Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, although if you had some white taffeta ribbon you could colour it to Cherry Cobbler.. CLEVER.. right?!!!

The tree is stamped in Kiwi Kiss and Choc Chip for the trunk and the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler!! Ooh and I've also added a little Rhinestone to the top of the tree for a little bling!!

Be sure to visit the fabulous Sweet SUnday Stampers for some AMAZING inspiration:-
And don't forget to link your card to InLInkz over at Karen's blog so we can all see what you've created.

AND...... DOn't forget to wish the FABULOUS Lynn a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! Happy, Happy Birthday Lynn!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
