January 2020 Week 3 for 52 CCT blog is theme prompt of gifts

#3 of 52 weeks in the year and this Christmas card features 2 gift package die-cuts and the word gift in the sentiment message.

This is a design team commitment project for 52 Christmas Card Throwdown:


The 2 gift package circular die-cuts have been in my stash for just over a year and are from one of American Crafts' designer lines.

The 3 patterned papers and sentiment message strip are from "Together at Christmas" collection for 2019 by Pink Paislee/American Crafts.


The sketch layout of this card is based on a favorite of mine from Laurel Seabrook's Sketchy Saturday #14. Find more of her work by searching for Laurel Seabrook Designs and Inspired By.
find her work at these inspired challenges blog:
Sketch no 14=

Thanks, Laurel, for the inspiration!

b. Scripturally Inspired Creativity group in Facebook; a private group for Christian crafters to share Bible-inspired artistic talents within worship, nurture the flock, and/or outreach for church ministries.

    1. Thanks! Appreciative of your feedback, Andreja M!!!

  9. Great colours, I used to have my bedroom this colour as a teenager much to the disgust of my Mum who wanted me to have pretty girly colours instead.

    You did a good job matching the papers to your embellishments.

    Thank you very much for your lovely card and entering it into our challenge and good luck.
