Only for the twisted...

I'm sure most of you have seen last weeks sketch challenge over at Splitcoast.
It was such a unique layout that I wanted to give it a try. Here's what I came up with....
I used the main image from "Merry Christmas" and a sentiment from "Twisted", both by My Favorite Things. The center element is a 3 inch square, just in case you'd like to try out this sketch for yourself.
I used Baha Breeze for the base and paired it up with Close to Cocoa and some patterns from "Urban Garden" and "Candy Lane". To finish it off I added some sheer pink ribbon, a button and did some piercing with my pokey thing.

Since I was working off of a sketch today, I also have a Christmas card to share.
The images are from "Sleigh Full of Toys" by Stampin Up. I grabbed some More Mustard and Purely Pomegranate cardstock and was lucky enough to find a scrap of patterned paper that matched perfectly.

Since it's a Christmas card, I decided to fancy it up a bit and add some bling and iridescent ribbon.
Did you play along with this sketch also? I'd love to see what YOU did. Leave me a link so I can check it out!
