Magnolia Down Under Challenge #63 - A Sketch

A few weeks ago the MDUC DT had a bit of fun doing a "sketch off" and you get to enjoy the fun of using the sketches we came up with - woohooo! Our sketch this week comes from the amazingly talented Kathrin. Kathrin LOVES her layers - LOL. I decided to use the opportunity to get another Christmas card made as I seem to have been doing a lot of Halloween cards lately - with more to come. Not bad for someone who doesn't celebrate Halloween! But I'm currently on a trip in The USA so I have been stocking up on Halloween papers and getting into the fun of the season.

But Christmas is on it's way and I decided to pair this snowman with some of last year's DPs from Magnolia. - did I tell you I LOVE snowmen???? Must be because they make me feel a little cooler when it's the middle of Summer over Christmas here in Australia - or maybe it's just because they are CUTE - LOL.

I'm sure the rest of the Magnolia Down Under gals have come up with some AMAZING inspiration for you using Kathrin's sketch - hop over HERE to check it out! Hope you can come along to play - it was such a great sketch to work with!!!

Your card is soooo cute. The papers are beautiful and you worked wonders with that layered sketch love it.
