Sketch Saturday, Caardvarks, My Time to Craft, Pile it On, Creative Inspirations and the Alphabet Challenges



Yes, I am back after a lovely hot day yesterday. This card was inspired firstly by the Pile It On Challenge of using no patterned paper. I then found a sketch I wanted to use which is from Sketch Saturday and is shown below.
I also wanted to do a Christmas themed card to enter the My Time to Craft Challenge . There is also a Winter Wonderland theme at Caardvarks.
I have mounted the Dustin Pike image of Father Christmas on gold miri card and then a red tag. The challenge at Creative Inspirations is Tags and at The Alphabet Challenge Blog it is T for .... so I thought this could be Tag too.
I have added some snowflakes with tiny red gems see below.


The three bars at the side are some sort of gold hessian type material.

The little sentiment tag is from the My Craft Studio "Magical Christmas" CD Rom.
I am always grateful for all comments they help me carry on.
Thanks
Dragonlady
