Joyeux Noel

2012 Faves Oct

This is my entry for the Verve Christmas Release sketch which enters you into a draw to win the entire release.  Hello!!

I was inspired by the heart Diva Maureen used on her card for this sketch.  She used the jotted heart die for hers but it was too small for my purposes so I used the nestie heart.

I went with a Christmas theme as it is a Christmas release after all.  A pink snowflake came to mind for some reason and where there is pink, I love to use brown :)    The card was great fun to make - finally, a card I wasn't fighting with LOL!  Even went with the French sentiment as a tribute to our bilingual country of Canada.  Have some relatives living in Ottawa (our capital) and work for the government so I think this card will be making it's way across the continent come Christmas.

Can't wait to see what Julee has cooked up for this release, but the patiently waiting part will be tough LOL!
