Sweet Sketch Wednesday #79

Greetings and Happy Wednesday from the warm desert southwest! As most of you are shivering in a deep winter chill, I am enjoying sunny blue skies and 65 degree weather - from the windows anyway! Today I promised myself I would get time in the craft room, and not to just work on Christmas gifts, but to make a card, or maybe two! This card, I made for Sweet Sketch Wednesday's sketch challenge, I actually made the entire card before even deciding what image to use! I did finally decide on Blooming Bouquet a December new release from Clear Dollar Stamps. Along with the stamp, I used the coordinating die - that  cute and embosses!

This is a lovely card Christi. Amazing die - creates a wonderful image and unique. I have these papers but haven't used them yet - you've inspired me to get down to my haven, pull them out and create a beauty like this card. It's good to see you back here at SSW.
