Guest Designer Post for Sketchy Challenges #76 Cordine's Sketch

A few weeks ago I was asked if I want to be a guest designer on The Sketchy Challenges blog and as this is a challenge I regularly join in with, I said yes of course! This week's sketch was designed by Cordine and there is also a Christmas in July theme running for the whole month as well. I don't do Christmas in July as a rule as it's far too early for me to be thinking about all that, but I had lots of fun making this Christmas card.

And here's the sketch by Cordine...

And here's my card using a digi I found already cut up, but obviously unused!

This card is also for Fab 'n' Funky's Challenge #222 to make a Christmas card and for Papertake Weekly's Anything Goes Challenge with the option of making a Christmas card.
