With this first card, I wanted to challenge myself by picking a color you don't see too often on Christmas cards, so I picked yellow, not gold, but yellow. I was going through my papers that people have rak'd me and I found this perfect paper. I don't think it turned out too bad.
This next card is for a sketch challenge over on Card Makin Mamas. I got this image in a Christmas swap last year.
I took an up-close pic of the snowflake so you could see how sparkly it is.
