We would like to take this opportunity to thank the weekly bonus sponsor: 62 Cards and the Monthly Sponsor DSR Designs!

Here is the sketch for this weeks challenge.

I decided to add to my stash of Christmas cards. I think I send out approximately 50 cards at Christmas. So I am getting there, but still have a long way to go. I don't know about you, but I just love to make Christmas cards.
I found this pink dp in my stash. It is pretty old and time to cut into it!!! I used last years release Martha Stewart snowflake punch for these snowflakes. I love the intricate shape of these. I punched a snowflake brad through the middle of them and added a pink rhinestone on top of the brad. The snowflakes were stickled. A Martha Stewart border punch was also used for the lace. I feather stitched the outside of the card on my sewing machine. There are 4 layers of this Fred She Said digi stamp pop dotted one on top of the other.

Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to check out all the details regarding the fun going on at Pricilla's blog for Midnight Madness. I appreciate your stopping by today and appreciate your thoughts and comments. They really make my day!
