Hi friends!  I am playing along with CAS Colours & Sketches Challenges.  I love me a good sketch and I am in need of some more Christmas cards to add to my stash.   This sketch was a good chance to get another Christmas card done. 

Here is the sketch:

I used Concord & 9th's plaid background stamp to stamp the plaid on my card base.  I then took the lovely Poinsettia stamp from Catherine Pooler's Tis the Season stamp set.  I stamped and embossed using Rockin' Red ink and Embossing Powder.  I love that Catherine's inks stay wet just long enough for you to sprinkle embossing powder on after stamping.  The added sparkle on the Poinsettia is just what this card needed for some pizzaz.

Look at the sparkle I was able to capture in this close-up!!!  So fun!  The sentiment I used is from Catherine's Holiday Mix stamp set.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
