Blessings of the Season 1

The weekly challenge is open at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenges. This is Challenge #386, beginning on Monday, September 14, and ending on Sunday evening, September 20, 2020.

I decided to use the sketch for a Christmas card. A panel of green cardstock was added to the white card base, followed by a panel of plaid paper. The tree was stamped, colored, and fussy-cut before being placed onto red foiled cardstock with foam tape and then adhered to the card front. The sentiment was stamped and adhered along with a few Christmas presents to the bottom right of the tree, in keeping with the sketch. Gold pearls were also added. The inside was decorated with the same style of gifts.

I think that AHSC has some of the very best sketches available for challenges. Visit their Blog and take a look at their guidelines for playing along.
