Hello!  It’s time for stash challenge week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown!  Our August hostess, Gill, has thrown a double doozy at us this week – our challenge cards must use both glitter and bling.  Now, those of you who know my crafting habits know that I tend to avoid glitter whenever possible – so this was indeed a challenge for me!  But I was able to work it in with the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge, and I have to admit I’m pretty pleased with the result.  I did take the liberty of turning the sketch on its side.  I couldn’t decide on a sentiment to add to the card front, so I decided to just go without, so that way it can be either a Christmas card or a wintertime “thinking of you” or any other occasion card.
