A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 28 - Sketch by Michelle!

Our new challenge has just started over at "A Spoon Full of Sugar" and this week we have a great sketch for you to follow from the very talented Michelle.
We would also like to welcome Heike as our Guest Designer and thank her for her gorgeous creation. We have a fabulous prize this week from our sponsor Katharina.

For my card today I have used the cute High Hopes stamp Callies Christmas Kitty. I was trying to go for a warm fuzzy glow around her but to me it looks like the Christmas lights may be on fire! lol.. I have used gorgeous BG papers and stickers adding button detail to the Christmas tree. All products in blue below can be purchased from Silly Monkey Crafts.

Hope you get some inky time to join in our challenge,
Hugs,
