Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #231

This weeks sketch from Atlantic Hearts proved to be a bit of a challenge for me and my card underwent several changes before I was somewhat satisfied.  I think it is the decorative element "all in a row" which is usually not an issue but for some reason, I was just not happy with my choices this week.

As I am working on my big annual Christmas Card workshop I wanted to stick with the Christmas theme and used some of the new Silver & Gold paper from Close To My Heart.  I paired it with Cranberry Cardstock and the holly is made from the Beary Christmas paper and Fern Cardstock, Red Glitter paper for the berries and Whisper Thick Twine for added dimension and texture.  The Cricut cut is from the City Sidewalks Digital Collection (retired).
In the end, I love the clean, simple lines of this card with just the bit of sparkle from the berries.  Thank you for stopping by and I truly appreciate your comments.  I hope I have inspired you to come play along with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

Happy Crafting!
