Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge #34..........A Sketch.

Hello there my lovely blog friends, I'm back today with a sketch for this week's challenge from Inspired by Stamping.

I decided to make a Christmas card to add to my growing stash, it's just over 6 weeks to Christmas now, I know what I'm like, thinking I've got plenty of time, then panicking, last minute. This card is a large 8" X 8", I love to send this size card to my family. 

I've got a thing for button wreaths at the moment, this time, I've used it on a card, sprinkling the buttons with glitter and glass glitter.
I used the large Spellbinder Scallop and Circle die, adding the buttons and making a house for the centre using the Spellbinder Home Sweet Home die set.
I used the December 25th Labels set for the greeting, but just used part of the stamped image by using a scallop punch to cut out the centre, so don't think you have to use the whole stamp, you can just use part of it.

Stamps- December 25th LabelsVintage Postcards Add-On 1.
Papers- Websters Pages, October Afternoon.
Pretties- IBS Crochet Trim, IBS Poinsettia Flowers, SU Glitter, SU Glass Glitter.
Tools- Spellbinder Scallop & Circle die, Spellbinder Home Sweet Home, SU Scallop Punch, Martha Stewart Holly Punch.
