Hello there, and happy Saturday to you! It’s sketch challenge week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  As with all of our sketches, you’re welcome to use the sketch as it’s drawn, turn it on its side, or manipulate it into a square.  So long as we can see the “skeleton” of the sketch, it’s all good!

I’ve added a couple layers to the sketch but otherwise kept my card rather clean and simple in design.  I opted to go for more of a wintry card than one specifically Christmasy.  It’s not easy to see in the photo, but I pierced the scalloped circle for a tiny bit of additional interest.  I attached the focal panel to the card with dimensional adhesive. This card will be going into the stash I’m saving up for Send a Smile 4 Kids.
