CLP #53 Last Sketch of 2012

Hi, time for the CLP Midway Reminder. This is the last sketch….of 2012 that is. 😛
No worries; our kind boss, Chelsea has just given us December off – we’ll be back to work in January again!  This is the November sketch – so much fun to play with!
…and this is my card:
I just counted and this is Christmas card No. 21 this year…blimey; not that many more to go! There’s actually a slight chance that I’ll ve finished prior to Dec, 24th this year! 🙂
Both the image, Heidi by Sylvia Zet, and the sentiment postage stamps are from Whimsy.

The papers are from Maja Design’s new Christmas collection “It’s Christmas Time“.
I’ve always loved brown (my mum used to refer to me as the brown mouse as I’d always wear brown clothes 🙂 ), so I decided to make a monochrome card in brown. There are so many beautiful sheets in brown tones in Maja’s collection that it was hard to choose, but finally I went with Christmas Thoughts and Spirit (used both the front and the backside). The stunning lace is the Rhinestones Lace in Oyster Cream; I’m expecting delivery of it in brown-grey anytime now… The other lace used is “Lace Camille“.
