Scrap Therapy $50 Sketch Challenge and some Christmas Cards

Here's the  November Sketch
for Scrap Therapy
its worth a fabulous $50!
Have fun with this!

Here's my sample....
You can see the fully details and the other DT members examples

Have you ever looked at how fabulous this Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium Happy Holidays paper could be if it were turned into 4 sets of cards? Thats good budgeting :P

Just cut out each picture including the surrounding background...
And mount them on some folded pattern paper or cardstock.

I've added a little extra onto each card

On both the next two cards I've used as the card base - Basic Grey Wassail 'Olive Branch (Basic Grey background paper - no matter how old...its like that classic black dress!) Sentiments - Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage Sticker Sheet, String and Red ribbon Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage Trim. The Sparkle - Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage Rhinestones -see the red sparkly belt around Santa's middle?

And can your see the rhinestones around the back part of the ladies collar and on the hung Christmas sign? :D

The last two photos have a Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium Merry and Bright paper as a base to the card. The sentiments are Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage Chipboard Elements and Sparkle - Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage Rhinestones See the little silver trims to two of the little boy's pj's and Santa has a rhinestone on his scarf as with the candle - to represent a 'flame'.


And the rhinestones are found on the Christmas tree :P

Loving that Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage collection too!
