FTTC72

The Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday challenge was a sketch challenge hosted by Silke.
Since she is in my group of favorite stampers, I just had to do this challenge. I decided that if I could make one of the many challenge cards I do during the week a Christmas card, I could get my cards done a little bit at a time and wouldn't have to do so many when Christmas gets here. I love this Breezy Blue cardstock from Mark's Finest Papers and it went so well with this Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses collection. I matched an old piece of soft sky ribbon from my stash and used my nestabilities for the ovals. I punched the holly leaves out with a Martha Stewart punch and used red rhinestones as the holly berries.
