I just love to make cards. It feels like I'm sending a paper hug with every card I make:)

Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #232
My what a busy time we have had this past week! Returning from visiting our daughter and her lovely family in Wisconsin, catching up with all that needed to be done around the house and garden, and completing the next few cards for the sketch challenge! It's lovely to visit, but it's always good to be home, don't you think?
Here is this week's sketch
and here is my card:
I have used a Christmas wreath from the lovely Sweet 'n Sassy clear stamp set: Seasonal Wreaths, which also has a coordinating die set, making it so easy to cut the wreath out, if that is the way you want it. I coloured my wreath in traditional holiday colours, and popped it up on dimensionals, over a shimmery white card from my stash (the shimmer doesn't show in the photo, unfortunately). I have mounted this on a pretty Spellbinders die cut - called Marvellous Squares. The top half of my card has been dry embossed with a holly embossing folder, and dp covers the bottom two shapes. I think this is a lovely layout for Christmas cards, and will be using it again with many other images, I'm sure.
I hope you have a try at this sketch challenge, but don't forget to pop over to the other sugarbabies, to see what they have come up with.
