Sketch Challenge at 52CCT

I can't believe how well the first challenge has gone at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - I hit on the idea in late December, invited Mynnette to join me in the venture and we have 47 followers already!
So, this week we have a sketch for you to follow - take a look

Mynnette has charge of January and she has designed this fabulous sketch for us this week. Here are 2 cards that I have made  following this sketch

Card no. 1 uses SU Real Red, Lucky Limeade and Very Vanilla card stock. The robin is punched using the 2 Step Bird punch and Liquid Pearls were used to add the mistletoe berries.
Card no.2 uses blue card stock from my stash along with a piece of snowflake paper. Whisper White card stock forms the decorative piece running along the middle and I have added some silver foil snowflakes attached with brads.
I really hope you find the time to pop over and take a look and perhaps even join in - bye for now - Jacqueline xx


  1. Two brilliant cards for your Christmas collection - love sketches to follow

  9. Thanks for visiting my blog :) I love both the cards you've made, but especially the robin one, as I love the ribbon you've put down the middle of the border. It's a small detail but very striking!
