April 2020 Week 1 or Thirteenth Week of the Year for 52 CCT blog

52 CCT April 2020 Week 1 = sketch challenge

Hello! Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! During the autumn months of 2019, I yearned to be a bit more disciplined management-wise to create Christmas cards throughout the year so that I wouldn't be panicked in December. I was thrilled when 52 CCT accepted me onto the design team for 2020. So it's incredible to think that this is already my 13th card made for my stash and for the blog!

4 old patterned papers from a paper pad collection were pulled out of storage because of their reds or greens. The stacked tag was actually made for last week's Christmas card but it was too competing in colors and number of foil snowflakes on it. (upcycling a gift tag bought in 2018)...timing is everything, don't you think?!?!! It's perfect for this mix:

The sketch was rotated 180 degrees and I used the tag shape instead of a circle. I added the row of gems because I felt it either needed a stamped sentiment or something like a row of gems...just can't quite do CAS layouts....
