Hello!  It’s the fifth Saturday of the month of July, and that means at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, it’s “Pick a Previous” week!  This time we’re asking our participants to choose a 52CCT sketch from 2016 and create a card based on it.

I picked the sketch from February.  I gave the vertical strip an extra mat compared to the way the sketch is drawn, just to help highlight more of the colors in the designer paper. I layered glittery felt snowflake stickers for the large embellishment element of the sketch and added a rhinestone in the center for a little extra sparkle.  It was a quick and easy card, and it’ll go into the stockpile I’m creating for Send a Smile 4 Kids.

I’m also planning to submit this into the “something tactile” challenge at Less is More.

The rest of the design team and I are looking forward to seeing which of our sketches from 2016 you’ll select for your own card.  Be sure to link it to the challenge post by 7:00 p.m. Eastern time Friday, August 5.  We’d love to have you join in the fun and creativity!  Thanks for stopping by today.
