Yes - I still need more Christmas cards - so for my card I used the fun Nutcracker from the Nutcracker Sweet set. The dotted circles is from that set as well. The sentiment is from Around Christmastime.
I used two papers for my background - the bottom is October Afternoon Thrift Shop and the top is a piece of Core'dinations that I embossed with the Holly embossing folder then sanded over the top so the design popped.
I love the nutcracker but don't really like to color all that much (usually I'm too rushed to get a card done to take the time to color!) but this guy looks great just stamped doesn't he?!
So come along and join us in the sketch challenge this week - you don't have to use Waltzingmouse Stamps but if you have some please do!
Check out the WMS Sketch Blog and get inspired by the cards the Mischief Makers and other DT members have created using this week's sketch.
Then make your own card using the sketch and link it on the Sketch Blog by Thursday 12/9/10 at 11:59 pm EST - you could be chosen Top Mouse next week!! Winners are announced each Saturday along with the new sketch challenge.
