Merry Christmas Sketch for Merry Monday's #107

This week's Merry Monday Challenge #107 is to use this sketch.

I find sketches hard to do.  Give me colors to use any day and my creative juices flow like mad.  Not so much with sketches.  I find them a lot more difficult because there are so many options.    It took me all week to come up with something for this sketch.  I don't have a lot of time for this post, so it is short and sweet.

Products used:
Gina K's "Pure Luxury Ivory" card stock
Carta Bella's "So this is Christmas" (striped designer paper)
Carta Bella's "Christmas Day" (25 days designer paper)
Stampin' Up's "Crumb Cake" card stock
Stampin' Up's "Decorative Dots " Embossing Folder
Stampin' Up's "Bravo Burgundy" ink
Stampin' Up's "Merry Christmas" and "Santa Post" stamps (don't know what sets they came from...sorry)
PaperTrey Ink's "Button Stacks" dies,
PaperTrey Ink's "Wreaths for All Seasons" stamp set
Tan colored ribbon and DMC floss
Spellbinders circle dies and scalloped circle dies

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to check out the other wonderful sketches at Merry Monday's Challenge #105.

Lastly, I want to wish everyone a wonderful Mother's Day!  I have been very blessed to have a beautiful loving mother who is still very active, loves her family to pieces and loves it when we are all together.   We'll be spending the day with her and dad, and I can't wait!
