Waltzingmouse Sketch Christmas Card

Hey everyone!

**WooHoo This card was chosen as a Top Mouse for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge**

For those of you who celebrated Mother's Day yesterday I hope it was a special one whether you are a mother or honoring your mother. None of us would be here without those special ladies! :-)

I have a card I put together very quickly because, well like most, it's the top of the week and the to do list is very long!  The Waltzingmouse Sketch this week made it easy to assemble this quick card, and I need to start building up my Christmas stash, so I am not frantic come Holiday time. I still don't make enough to send handmade Christmas cards to our entire list, but I try my best to send out special ones to very close friends and family! 

Here is my take on the sketch! 
I used Vintage Ornaments for both the focal image as well as the sentiment. My papers are from DCWV Christmas Stack.  

I, of course, like to embellish/dress things up a bit so I added a gold glittered star with a pearl to the ornament. Some gold jingle bells were tied around my fussy seam binding embellished bow.  Last but not least you will find three golden pearls under the sentiment! :-)

Here is the sketch for the week!

I hope your week is a goody!
Hugs,
