CHRISTMAS THANK YOUs

Have you ever found sketch you love so much that you use it over and over again? Well, this one from Taylor VanBruggen's Cupcake Sketch Challenge #44 seems to be that one for me. I love this sketch because it shows off several patterns of designer paper and uses the versatile "circle within the scallop circle" that I use all the time. I've used this sketch HERE and HERE and again for this Christmas thank you card. I had been struggling with a design for a Christmas thank you card all week until I saw THIS CARD this morning by Gretchen Clark at This n' That ... bingo! RECIPE

Paper: Ski Slope DP, Baja Breeze, Real Red, Old Olive, and Whisper White CS
Ink: Real Red
Embellishments: Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon

Fantastic card. The colors are so pretty and I love the simplicity of it. That sketch is fantastic. I have used a variation of it many times. I am certainly going to add this sketch to my book too.
