52CCT September Sketch Challenge

Hello friends and followers - so happy you've decided to visit me today!
This week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown (52CCCT), our 
hostess Asha has a sketch challenge for you 
take a lookie-see

We also have a wonderful sponsor for this week

I've used one of Deedee's fabulous digital stamp sets called "Away in a Manger"
Here's my card:

Such a sweet image and a wonderful way to remember
the true meaning of Christmas!

I'm really proud of myself lately as I've been making a true
effort to use up some of my stash of designer papers.
I love this combo of the light blue and dark - don't you?

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Christmas Card Challenges #40 - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for September - Anything Goes
Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - Use R, E or D (I used D for dies)
Papertake Weekly - anything goes

I hope that you will decide to join us this week at 52CCT.
My lovely DT pals have made some gorgeous Christmas creations
to further inspire and awe you.  Please go check them out :o)
Til next time...hugs and merry crafting! D

  10. I agree with you that the designer papers coordinate well together, and the color of the twine is a perfect match with them. I like your clean and layered approach to the sketch!

  11. That image is so sweet, Danielle. And I do love the DPs you used. They compliment each other and the image too. Great take on the sketch.
    hugs, Asha

  12. This is so sweet, Danielle! I especially like the way you colored the image -- it has a warm, sepia tone feel to it. Such pretty papers, too. Thanks so much for sharing this!

  13. Hi Danielle, I tried to leave a comment earlier but Blogger was being flaky. So if this ends up being a duplicate somehow, I apologize! I just wanted to tell you what a sweet card this is! The way you colored the image has a warm, sepia-toned feel to it. Very pretty papers, too. Thanks so much for sharing this precious card!

  14. Congratulations on winning Crafty Hazel Nut's Christmas challenge extra for September
