Moxie Fab World The Horizontal Sketch Challenge

Welcome! I know it's only September, but I thought I'd  make a Christmas card based on this sketch challenge  for the  Moxie Fab World Horizontal Sketch Challenge.  Thanks to this sketch, I have an  early start on my holiday card making.   Here is the sketch,

and here is the card I created.

When I saw this sketch, I thought it would work well with the Spellbinders Postage Stamps dies I just bought, along with the new {ippity} stamp set, Gingham Christmas Greetings. I love this die and stamp set and the fun little stamps you can create with it!  I tried to keep the country feel of the stamp set by using kraft card stock for the card base and distressing the edges. I then added some red and white twine, a glitter snowflake and a tiny rhinestone star to complete the card. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
