Wow – it’s June already!  The year really seems to be going by quickly.

Since it’s the first Saturday of the month, it’s time for a sketch challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.  I’ve stretched the layout from a square into a rectangle.  Instead of circles, I thought I’d try snowflakes.  I’ve had this snowflake embossing die for a while and it was calling out to be used.  Even though the embossing adds some texture and dimension, the card is still flat enough to be easily mailed, so it’ll be a good one to add to the stash I’m creating for Operation Write Home. The strip of designer paper was a scrap from a previous card.  After finding a cardstock color that matched it pretty well, I decided to give the card a pop of color with the cherry red.

I hope you’ll go see what the rest of the design team did with this sketch, and that you’ll be inspired to use it to make a Christmas card of your own!  Be sure to share it at the 52{C}CT site by 1:00 p.m. eastern time Friday, June 7.  Thanks for stopping by today!
