This card is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge Blog, where there are very exciting things going on & tons of giveaways . . . make sure you stop by!

I got a little ahead of myself with a Christmas card this week, but couldn't resist the adorable winter images by Gurlee Girl. I stamped her three times using a mask to overlap. I eliminated a few features, like long hair or hat pompom, then uniquely watercolored each one so they appeared different.

I used the Mistletoe and Pear Collection by Basic Grey for all of my DP and green K & Co. "remake" cardstock (made from 100% post-consumer waste and printed w/soy ink). The buttons were a mixture of purchases at Wal-mart last Christmas (Merry & Bright) and some by Foofala. The evergreens are my Martha Stewart punch coated with Stickles and then for some jingle I added a couple of bells and ribbon. As usual it's all stitched together, this time with red & green thread :)

The Midnight Madness weekly sponsor is Simon Says Stamp, who is offering up a nice gift certificate to spend any way you want in their store!

and the monthly sponsor is Gurlee Girl -whose image I have used on my holiday card this week- and has also supplied a fat gift certificate for the monthly winner!

Check out the inspiration created by the rest of the design team then link your creation for your chance to win.
