UDI Sketch Saturday

Welcome to another Utah Diva's International sketch Saturday. I'm a bit late in getting my card posted (no excuses...I honestly just forgot to pre-post it last night) but I hope you like it anyway and will take a moment to check out what the other sketch designers have done for today's sketch. Now...on with the show!

When you check out the UDI blog you'll see that it says that this was an easy sketch and I have to tell you...I didn't think so. I wasn't sure what to do with it so I looked around at different cards and came up with a couple of different ideas, put them together, added my own twist, and here you have it!

This card is definitely towards the traditional with its Real Red and Old Olive colors. I, once again, used the Delightful Decorations stamp set. I can honestly say I had no idea that I would use this set as much as I have but it just makes wonderful cards! For a little more texture I used the Petals A Plenty embossing folder for the top little bit of the card and on the bottom I used the Merry Christmas stamp for a little more interest. The rest of the card is pretty self explanatory but if you have any questions please let me know!

This weekend (including Thanksgiving) I am making 6 Christmas cards each day inn order to have as many as I'd like. Thinking about it...I'm not sure that will be enough so I may have to make a few more! They are all the same but they are still unique, cute, and I will be sharing them with you later this week.

Alright, this is it from me today. I hope you'll have some time to participate in the UDI sketch challenge today!
