52 Christmas Card Challenge – March 2nd – Sketch 52CCT9-19

This week’s sketch was designed by Goga from our 52 CCT Design Team. It was funny because I belong to more than one DT and there were two sketches this week and I designed my cards for the other team sketch. So in a rush, I had to remake both cards, re-photograph them and redo my blog. I changed up the design slightly making my card fit a A2 card format and used a rectangle image vs a circular one. The image of the snowman is from Dilly Beans Stamps.
