Freshly Made Sketches: Let Us Adore Him

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Linda Callahan.


I have an unused trio of dies, one of which just called out to be on this sketch!

FMS Let Us Adore Him

The colors took a funny turn - this card started out all white!!  White wasn't quite right because the die got lost - so I paged through my Christmas paper stash and this one just jumped out. I loved its bold, Nordic colors yet I really hadn't done a Christmas card in quite this color scheme.  

It's such a busy time of year, but I hope  you can find a few minutes for yourself and play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

SUPPLY LIST

The patterned paper is from an old Basic Grey collection - Nordic Holiday

The village, the church, the sentiment...the essence of Christmas conveyed beautifully. The background paper: perfect! We're heading north shortly and I'm so looking forward to seeing my mom and taking her to Christmas Eve mass this evening. Fingers crossed our journey will be safe...a 'white Christmas' is making an appearance!
