"There is no greater gift at Christmas"

This is one of my favorite sentiments at Christmas. It is from "Close To My Heart" and I use it so often. I made this card for the Christmas Blog Challenge...the challenge was..."all I want for Christmas". I felt this sentiment should be all I want. I also used the Friday Sketcher Challenge for my sketch. This is a fun little sketch and it forced me to use paper with different prints. I find I often want to me matchy-matchy. I like the look of various pattens working together but don't often feel I am good at putting those prints together. My image if from Magnolia and I popped her and the sled with dimensionals I also added glitter to her Santa hat. I used "Nestablilities to cut the frame behind her. and added two little Christmas buttons to complete my card. and and  and

she's a doll Patty! I don't own this Tilda but I'm gonna have to break down and purchase her! lol I know what you mean about matchy, matchy...when I quilted, the gals always told me my quilts were that way! pout! lol
It was helpful though and I've tried harder to get out of my box over the years! Your card is lovely...the horn and the sentiment... so nice!
