Little Tree

I can't believe it, but it is Friday again, already!  Time for another challenge from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long and this week, it is a sketch:
I love sketches; in fact, I almost always start my cards with a sketch and go from there.  I just wasn't feeling this one, though.  It took a while to figure out how I wanted to dress it up a bit.  I used some unusual colors for a Christmas card, but in the end, I think I like it. : )  It's tough to tell in the photo, but several of those little metal "candies" have cute little patterns on them: chevrons, dots, hearts, etc.
I would love to see your take on this sketch.  Everyone always interprets sketches in different ways.  So come on and play along.  Go to the CSAYL blog for all the details.

super joli Heather, c'est très intéressant de voir le même tampon et le même sketch interprété différemment, ta version est si girlie et mignonne, biz
