Yes, It is Another Christmas Card

Here it is, New Year's Eve and I still had a Christmas card to make for this year. I am horribly behind so thankfully I wasn't scheduled to see the recipients of this card until New Year's Day anyway. They are also VERY understanding family members which is lucky for me.
On to the card. 365 Cards - Day 300 was Super Sketchy Sunday and Pam had another wonderful sketch for us to work with. The very talented Design Team had some awesome creations from this sketch for us to look at, so be sure you pop over there and check them all out. The Simon Says Stamp Challenge going on right now is "Anything Goes" so this card will also be entered in that challenge. They too have a very talented Design Team and you really need to visit them to see all of their creations as well.
Here is Pam's sketch for this week:

When making my card, I decided to rotate the sketch and turn it on its side. Instead of buttons I used the faux stamps. Here is what I came up with:

I had a lot of fun with this sketch and will probably use it again.

Recipe: paper, cardstock & "stamps" - Hot Off the Press; ribbon for bow - Sheer Creations; satin ribbon - my stash; poinsettia - Prima; rhinestones - Studio 18; sentiment tag - Michaels
