Fun 'n Flair - 1st challenge

Hi everyone!  Firstly, I am so sorry I am late getting this posted.  I am thrilled to announce that I am part of the first design team for Fun 'n Flair Stamps.  I am very excited to be here!

The first challenge is a sketch challenge and you all know just how much I love sketches!  This was a fun one, too.  So here's what I created with the sketch...

My card features Miss Shayla at Christmas Time.  This is such a fun stamp set.  The stamps are big so they are not only perfect for your cards but stand up well on a 12x12 scrapbook page.  Honestly, I had a hard time adapting the stamps to a card, but oh the fun I'll have with practicing with them.

Here's the inside of my card, featuring a lovely sentiment that's also in the set.

I'm not sure if you've heard, but the prize up for grabs is Miss Shayla at Christmas Time stamp set of your very own!  Head on over to the blog to play along.
