Paper Pretties Monday

Good Morning!  I hope you're weekend was as good to you as it was to me.  I had a good evening Friday evening having dinner with my Mom and later at home working on some more cards for the craft sale this Thursday.  I hope I sell a lot!

This week's challenge over at Paper Pretties is....

12 Days of Christmas

Now, I interpreted this as a Christmas card and I'm featuring a gorgeous image from ARTish.  I love this Deck the Bough image, I think it's lovely.

My intent was to create a masculine card and I guess this could be, but I think I expected something else out of me.  I am still very happy with my card.  I am sad that my photo didn't pick up the glittered ornament.  In person, it's beautiful.

I did use the awesome sketch from Just Us Girls.
