Sketching Holly

Hi! I’m here with a post for CASEplorations Inspiration Project Post #48

and SSS Wednesday Challenge Blog’s: Simon Says Christmas. I’d also like to play along at Word Art Wednesday’s Challenge #211: Anything Goes.

Recently, I have been enjoying stamping with white ink on Kraft. I love Kim’s card for CASEplorations Inspiration Project #48.

Here’s my card:


Mine is a very similar design to Kim’s. For my card though, I actually did NOT STAMP, but did a sketch instead. I’d also like to play this card at Emerald Creek Dares: Bringing Bits of Cheer and The Card Concept’s Challenge #44: Festive GloryΒ  ( I think that this card could be categorized as Clean & Graphic.) and Always Playing with Paper’s Challenge #52 {Create a Christmas Card}.

XO, Grace & Peace
