December CARD SKETCH CHALLENGE @ Orignal USA Scrapbook Expo

Hello and good morning!!!! I'm up over on the Original USA Scrapbook Expo blog...

and I am super excited to share the new December challenge with you today... Since this is the month of Christmas, and if you are like me, you still have a TON of Christmas or holidays cards that need to get made and sent out. So for this month's challenge we are providing you with a card sketch to get your mojo kick started.

Use this sketch to create a Christmas card:
I created this card with the sketch, using Basic Grey's Aspen Frost line
In addition I do want to add in that each time they make a card to remember to make one extra to bring to the show to donate to our "Care With Cards" program. We collected over 10,000 cards in 2012 that were donated to Huntsman Cancer Institute and Operation Write Home.

So since you have the sketch handy, why not just make another card????
Here's a second card that I created with the same sketch:
I also used the Basic Grey Card Kit which creates 12 cards!!!!! They were super easy and fun to put together. I ended up adding some machine stitching and some pop dots to add a bit to each card.
Here are the three cards, and then there is enough in the kit to make 4 of each:
 And here's what I finished with:
Talk about boosting your stash quickly...

So for the December Challenge:
Create a NEWLY card using the sketch above.
If you have a blog ADD your project to this blog post using the link below, NO LATER than December 31, midnight MST. If you do not have a blog please e-mail a photo of your project to and we will add your project here.
You can enter a MAX of TWO times, one for the card you create and the second for the card to be brought to the "Care With Cards" program.
