52 {C}CT February Sketch Challenge

It's a brand new month of challenges over here at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown. Our hostess for the month of February is Jacqueline and for our first challenge we have a sketch. It's an easy one, no excuse not to play along!

Of course, there's one other requirement. You've got to make a Christmas card. Exciting, right?

Here's one I made earlier:

I made a 5" square card. The papers are from Dovecraft's Vintage Christmas
8x8 pad.  Minimal embellishments - just 3 green bling. 

The image is from Chocolate Baroque's Hearth and Home, coloured with Promarkers.
I cut it our with SB Label 4 and inked the edges with TH Vintage Photo.   

The sentiment is from Chocolate Baroque's Warm Christmas Greetings, stamped with
Memento Rhubarb Stalk.

I'm also taking this card to the following challenges:

Make It Monday #177: AG
Crimbo Crackers #57: Christmas Happiness - light makes me happy!
Creative Knockout: Tic Tac Toe - stamps; sentiment; dies
CHNC Extra February: AG Christmas
CAS-ual Fridays #127: Over The Edge
ABC Christmas: B for Bare Minimum - just 3 bling
Fab & Funky #201: Christmas

Now it's your turn. In order to be considered for Top Honour and Honourable Mentions your card must follow this week's theme and you must link it to the 52 {Christmas}Card Throwdown Challenge Blog by 6pm GMT on Friday, 7 February.

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to have fun with this challenge! We're off to Oporto to celebrate the Lunar New Year with some friends.... can't wait to stuff my face. I wish y'all an equally rewarding weekend!
