Tuesday Morning Sketch #176

Two weeks until Christmas!!  I'm still making some Christmas cards though by now I should have been done and had them in the mail, but I'm just a little slow!

Time for Tuesday Morning Sketch #176.  This week is a judged challenge!  That means a chosen winner and a Top 5 (if we have enough that qualify).  To be eligible for the judged challenge, follow the sketch and do the twist.  This week our beautiful sketch is by Cheryl...

And the twist...non-traditional Christmas.   Our sponsor is Debbie, a Close to My Heart consultant.
Our very own wonderful Theresa provided us with CTMH stamps to play with!  Thanks, Theresa!!   I used the "Glory to God" set...

To me, black and white is very non-traditional for Christmas!!  I've mentioned a time or two (or a dozen times) that I'm very much a red/green Christmas kind of person, but I am pleased with this card!!
I embossed the image and some stars on the background

Be sure to check out my amazing fellow designers' creations for inspiration then play along for your chance to win!!

This is gorgeous, Debbie. This year, I find myself moving away from the red/green and your black/white combo is simply fab!

Hi Debbie! What lovely Christmas cards (I ♥ that sketch!) Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!! Guess what I just did??! I took my photo greeting card (that I made on my computer) downtown to have them printed, they'll be done in about an hour! Woohoo! I didn't realize until I just read your blog that Christmas is only 2 weeks away---ACK! I haven't mailed out a single card! Need to make up a few more simple ones and what I don't get done, they'll get the photo cards. LOL!

Have a wonderful evening! *Ü*
