'Tis the Season

The challenge at 52{Christmas} Card Throwdown is a sketch so I thought I would join in. I pulled out the Unity's October Kit of the Month {Oh Christmas Tree} to use one the sentiments.  The pattern paper is from a K&I Memories Kit and I'm sad to say I have a lot of it left - but I thought I would try to use it up on the Christmas Challenges, so here goes the first challenge. 


I started with  a partial sheet of the blue background paper and the already cut polka dot and striped paper.  I stamped the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock and punched it, then backed it with the same punch.  All of my edges are inked and I'm using a new ink pad so it's really juicy.


For the inside I added a white mat with a piece of  the background paper at the top.

Thanks for stopping by.
