Time for a Christmas Sketch

Julie at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges chose a great sketch challenge this week.  Here is her sketch:

We have a sponsor this week, Bugaboo Stamps and that means a great prize for someone. 

I used the Christmas Window Santa from Bugaboo Stamps for my image along with some pretty holiday pattern papers, ribbon, scrapbook sentiment, ribbon and glitter. The image was coloured with glitter and metallic markers. I like the sketch that Julie chose, I think it made an interesting Christmas card.

Hope you enjoy my card and have a fantastic week.  Come join us at Holly Jolly and get your Christmas cards done early this year.
