Papercraft Star Challenge 68

Hello everyone!  Are you ready for another challenge from The Papercraft Star!  This week is a sketch challenge from the very talented Kim.  This is such a fun sketch, I decided to make a Christmas card.  I just saw the circles and the image of a poinsettia wreath come to mind.  I started with some butter cream cardstock distressed with vintage photo distress ink and matted a piece of patterned paper from Graphic 45.  I paired the patterned paper with this darling music sheet from our sponsor The House Across The Bay.  I thought this image worked so well with the Graphic 45 Christmas line.  The image and sentiment is from Verve.  The gorgeous seam binding is from Paper Loves Glue etsy shop!  Another Christmas card under my belt and only like 39,475,013,496,813,490 more to go.  Well it feels that way.  I hope to see your creations!  Just link up by Monday 6 a.m. EST for your chance to win some digital downloads. Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your week.
