Playing in Paradise #97 - It's Sketchy

Happy Friday everyone,  we are well into Dec now and Christmas is peaking around the corner at us. I have not reached holiday excited yet, but the rounds of Christmas Parties start this weekend for us.
Vacation was fabulous but I brought me home a little bug, my immune system has taken a beating in 2012. I have had more coldlike bugs this year than in the last 5 combined. I hate it, I am the first to admit I get grumpy when the germs come calling.

Anyhoo, enough of my grumbles. We have a new Playing in Paradise Challenge and Allison has a brand new sketch for us.

PPC 97
I found myself in a happy place with my Christmas cards this year, I make a new one every week throughout the year so I have a good supply. When I saw this sketch with the little snowflakes though,  I could not resist and I really don't think I will have a problem finding a home for it.
I have all my 6x6 Christmas paper pads on the side of my desk within easy reach. I used a die cut to create this darling little tree, I added some little details like stamped and punched snowflakes, gems and ribbon.

Please be sure to visit this week Playing in Paradise Challenge, our Challenge team has some wonderful projects that are a great inspiration. You can also join in the fun to win a prize.
Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper - Carta Bella,  HOTP- Christmas art, misc ribbon, gems and punches, Spellbinder and Dee's Distinctively die cuts.
