Banner Christmas CCMC279

First let me wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving today!  I hope you have a wonderful day with family and friends!  Lots of fun, food and gratitude!

Today being Thursday means that it's another fun challenge from Create with Connie and Mary... this time a great sketch challenge.  I used one of my favorite holiday sets,  A Banner Christmas and some favorite colors for this season, Real Red, Old Olive and Crumb Cake.

I really like sketch challenges because they provide the layout for the card so some of the work is already done for you.   I used Designer Series Paper for the two background panels:  Season of Style and Polka Dot Parade.

The words on the smaller front panel are  from A Banner Christmas set... I love that little "JOY" banner, don't you?  I added three stars punched from Red Glimmer Paper.. love that stuff, so sparkly!

Paper piercing across the top and bottom edges of the front panel and a medium Rhinestone colored with a Sharpie marker are the finishing accents to the card.

Here's the sketch for Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge CCMC279:

You'll want to go to Connie and Mary's website to see what all the other fabulous designers did with this sketch... they are SO creative!!

Now it's your turn!  Take this sketch and make your own creation with it then be sure and show us what you did by uploading it to Create with Connie and Mary's website!  Have fun with it!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a wonderful weekend... and be safe out there if you shop on "Black Friday"!  : )

Warm wishes,

Margaret
