WMSC58 - July 30. 2011 - Nutcracker Sweet
This is the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 58 for the week of July 30. I couldn't wait to start inking up the new Nutcracker Sweet set that I just received. I usually think Christmas and go for the reds and greens, but this time I thought I would try something different. I see so many contemporary cards with aquas, pinks, and violet that look gorgeous, but never really tried one myself. Probably because I put off my Christmas cards until December 5th and time for fun and games is long gone - it becomes more of a chore than a labor of love. I'm glad I started participating in the sketch challenges - I am miles ahead on my cards. Before I only made them when I had an event coming up.
