Christmas Challenges (with sketches) #55

It's time for our final challenge of the year over at CCWS and we hope you've been playing along with us this year and stocking up on those Christmas cards and projects. The challenge will run until January 12th 2013. The whole of the Design team are taking part and the twist is you get to choose a sketch from one of the previous 54 challenges to use. Don't forget to tell us which one you have used.
We don't have a sponsor for this challenge but each of the Design Team will have a surprise for their favourite entry.

I loved this sketch that Nicole from the Holiday Fairies made for challenge #44. Great for using scraps from the bit box and my favourite Penny Black stamp die cut with a Spellbinders fancy rectangle. Image is coloured with promarkers and highlighted with glamour dust. Gems and sentiment from my stash. 

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the creations from the rest of the team, you won't be disappointed.

Challenges entered:
Stamptacular Sunday - Christmas card
Come and Get It - Christmas
Opus Gluei - baby it's cold outside
Penny Black at Allsorts - it's your choice
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - glitter and sparkle
Anything goes - traditional Christmas colours
Celebrate the Occasion - Christmas anything goes
