Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 336 (TSSC336)

Happy Columbus Day to you!  If you are lucky you may even have this day off.  Then again, you may not even celebrate it--in that case--Happy Monday!  Hope you are ready for a new challenge, this week's sketch is a pretty easy one.  My card took me about 7 minutes total!  Here is the sketch....

I took a simple clean route for a fun Christmas card.....



I adore this paper from the All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack so thought I would make it the focal point of my card.  The colors are Lost Lagoon and Soft Sky.  The sentiment is from the Good Greetings Set.  Other supplies used are rhinestones and Frosted Sequins.

Now check out the rest of the Design Teams samples to get your creative thoughts rolling....

Falling for The Newborn King.

As a christian I always need to buy the current stamp sets for Christmas that have a christian theme to them and this is so fun and whimsical so I knew I would have to have it--but those of you who know me know that I do not like to use stamps for ONLY ONE purpose so I am using this set for my Latenightstamper's Challenge this month! Yep, I said month--our new challenges will run for a full month and you will have a general theme so you will have no excuse for not playing along. lol.  The October challenge will be to create a sample that fits a Fall, Harvest or Halloween Theme!  Fun right?

Paper: Color Me Autumn DP, Crushed Curry, Whisper White and Soft Suede
Ink: Basic Brown
Other: blendabilities, circle die, Fun Fall Framelits, small flag punch, candy dots
