Holly Jolly Christmas

     I have the bragging rights of being the first winner of the sketch challenge with Scrapbooker's Paradise.  They asked that I play along with this month's sketch.
     I just can't turn down a good sketch challenge after winning bragging rights so here is my take.
     I used the JustRite Cardinal with Basic Grey paper.  This is the first time I've airbrushed rhinestones.  I was a bit skeptic but it worked like a charm!  
     Hop over to the Scrapbooker's Paradise blog to see their design team's cards and give this sketch a try.  I love this sketch and will use it again.  Just remember I have bragging rights to being the "first" winner!  Thanks Laura for inviting me to play!
     I will be entering this card in the Basic Grey challenge and the Simon Says Stamp challenge.
