Grown Up Christmas List

Good Morning, I hope that you are all well on this beautiful sunny morning.
Today is the start of a new ABC Christmas Challenge. It was my turn to host and I have selected the theme
L is for Lyrics
We are asking you to create a Christmas Card using the lyrics of your favorite Christmas songs and carols as inspiration.

We have two generous sponsors that have offered up some great prizes.

The lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp are offering one lucky entrant
A $15 voucher to spend in her store
Simon Says Stamp
The fabulously talented Krista Smith at Saturated Canary is offering another lucky entrant
their choice of 2 digis from her store

Krista has generously provided the DT with some of her gorgeous images for our cards this week. I have chosen to work with Molly the Elf. This sweet girl holding her Christmas list she reminded me of the song Grown Up Christmas list which is all about wishing for things like peace, love and joy for Christmas.

I knew right away that I wanted this to be a bright fun card so I have coloured the image to match these wonderful papers from MME which can be found at Simon Say Stamp here. The layout for my card was based on this week's sketch from Sketch Saturday. I have added only one embellishment this week, a gorgeous rosette flower that I made using my new Tim Holtz die, this thing is amazing and makes it so easy.

I have even finished the inside, I am trying hard to get into the habit of this when I know what the card will be used for. It sure beats having to go through and add all the inserts right before I have to put them in the mail.

I hope that you have been inspired to join us.  Be sure to visit the rest of the DT over on the challenge blog to see all of their gorgeous creations.
Happy Crafting!
