The Pixie Cottage Sketch Challenge #42 &/or Use Metal!

For this weeks Pixie Cottage Challenge I used this adorable stamp called Hannah’s Letter by Sandra Hammer.  On my vintage Christmas Card, I used Tim Holtz Christmas Idea-ology cardstocks as well as bazzill red solid.  My flourishes were created using Tim Holtz sizzex diecuts.  Flowers are by prima.  For a finishing touch and to have metal on my card, I added a Santa charm on the bow.

It's another sketch and challenge at The Pixie Cottage and this week we have a Special Guest Sketch Artist and that is Penny from Busch Creations!
She made this super sketch for us.  Why not get your supplies out and join us in this weeks challenge.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
