Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #209

Happy Wednesday!
I hope you're all having a great start to your week!  We've had a beautiful week here so far.  Monday and Tuesday were both quite warm which was a nice change from the weather we had on the weekend!  I love warm fall day!  I know winter is right around the corner and I'm dreading it!

We have a new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches and I am this week's hostess!  Coming up with a sketch is not an easy task.  You don't want to make something too complicated and you don't want something that is too easy!  I think I may have leaned a little more towards the easy side!  I like to think of it more on the "clean" side!  I hope you like it and will play along with this week's challenge!
I am trying to get ahead on Christmas cards!  I do love the snowflake punch (as you are probably well aware!).  I like it's simplicity.  You must be sick of seeing the snowflake and the word "Merry"!  I'll try and mix it up next week!  I like to show that cards don't have to be layered or complicated (though those cards are also fabulous!).  Simple can be lovely too!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
Stamps: Holly Jolly Greetings
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Other: Snowflake Punch, Christmas Greetings Thinlits, Silver Sequins, Basic Rhinestones, Stitched Rectangles (Lil' Inkers), Dimensionals

I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out what the Design Team has created for you!  You will be inspired!  I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Have a fabulous day!
