A OWH Christmas Card!

Hello! I made this card for Operation Write Home--time to start working on Christmas cards for them, now that I shipped off the last of my Halloween cards. This is a Whiff of Joy Santa from last year. I used a sketch from a challenge blog called Unscripted Sketches. This is a really nice sketch for OWH cards--I will probably use it again for that purpose. Their challenge is also to do a monochromatic color scheme, which really worked out nicely, since I had a lot of red accumulated somehow!

Challenges Entered:
Unscripted Sketches--sketch and monochromatic
Secret Crafter--Anything goes--some cute manga stamps there!
Paper Romance--birthday or Christmas
Catch the Bug--holiday
Cowgirl--not a square card
Corrosive Challenge--use unused craft stuff--I used Prima Flowers and buttons

Thanks for looking and happy stampin'!

Nice, I love that sprig of green with the flower. I need to find that punch it adds so much. Thanks for creating along with us this week at Unscripted Sketches.

VERY pretty! Is the bottom of the card patterned paper or did you stamp that? Either way it's really pretty and the image is just so sweet. The pearls add a very nice touch too. Thanks for playing along with the Catch the Bug challenge this week. Join us Saturday for another one and check us out on CDAC where we're sponsoring a holiday challenge with a free digi!
