OCC Haul out the holly..it's time to decorate!

This week at Our Creative Corner Wendy is hosting a sketch challenge!

Check out the great sketch below:

Wendy wants you to take the simple sketch, and decorate it for the holidays!
My CAS style usually doesn't lend itself to too much decorating/embellishing, so I chose to use a patterned paper to help me step outside of my comfort zone. I REALLY like how it came out!

(BTW, that amazing paper is from Martha Stewart. I love every design in the collection, and used some on this card too!) The wrapped twine was inspired by Day 15 of Kristina's holiday card series. Only 10 more days to go!

This week the Cards challenge is Christmas.....I'm sure Paige will receive many entries!

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you join us for the challenge this week at Our Creative Corner!
