Hello!  We’re starting off another month of challenges at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown with a sketch challenge.  This one has some fun circles as well as rectangles and the chance to add a ribbon bow.

During September our challenges are being sponsored by Deedee’s Digis, and I’ve used one of their image sets for my card.  The set comes with an outline version of the image as well as a pre-colored version.  Because our color printer is out of ink, I’ve used the outline version and colored it myself.  Since I put a sentiment in one of the circular elements, I added a few rhinestones where the sketch suggested to put the sentiment.  The rhinestones started out clear, but I colored them with a Copic marker to coordinate with the deep red designer paper I’d used for the mats.

Now it’s time for you to show us what you can do with this sketch.  If you need more inspiration first, be sure to check out the 52{C}CT site to see what the rest of the design team has made.  Then link your card there by 1:00 p.m. Eastern time Friday, September 12.  We’d love to have you join us!
