.... a traditional colour scheme for a Christmas card. The Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge this week has a super sketch with three panels and a circle, and the Waltzingmouse Christmas Challenge for August is to use three different papers for your card(s). A perfect marriage of two challenges.
For my card I've turned the sketch on its side to make a vertical card. I picked the traditional colours of red and green, with a hint of gold. First I made the three background papers - all the images are from Waltzingmouse - I used Stampin' Up! inks, and cut them to size. For the focal image and sentiment I stamped the image twice and embossed it to give a bit of colour. I used my nesties to cut the gold mat and bottom layer, and decoupaged the Christmas sentiment. This was a fun challenge!

It's been a good morning - my hairdresser, Debbie, has been and trimmed my hair - looks great. I do like the luxury of having Debbie come to my house. And now, time to get back to the routine stuff in the house. Hopefully, I'll be able to grab some time in the craft room this evening. See you all later. Have a good day.
