My Turn at 52CCT

Morning all - it's my turn to host the month's challenges at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and as always we kick off with a sketch - take a look

And here is my card

You will be forgiven for thinking that it is very close to my last card for the 52CCT sketch but I am having an idea (yes I know it's frightening!). I am thinking that I will do all the sketches similar so that come December I will have a nice little pack of similar styled cards to give as a gift or use as a raffle prize. That's the idea anyway!
Washi tape is perfect for this design and so quick too, and I do love the gold sequins that are now in the new Spring/Summer mini. Along with the gold foil card stock they add a lovely touch of glamour to my cards.
