Time for our monthly sketch challenge & my final Christmas theme for this year. I decided to create a slightly more masculine look for the festive season with our nearest & dearest in mind. Jane Gill's big single stamp Festive Background is just perfect for this. This design lends itself  beautifully to a number of different techniques especially embossing. I have embossed the cream panel with a mix from the Tuscany embossing kit from Stampendous with a little Detail Gold added. For the background layer I have used just Detail Gold on Christmas green card. Even though this is a masculine card we can still add some richness & texture in the form of buttons, Metals, Elements & even a touch of ribbon doesn't go amiss. All the layers are mounted onto a Craft card blank which I have also stamped with the Festive Background stamp. Happy Christmas to your special someone! 

This is December's sketch to follow so why not join in this month's sketch challenge. If you don't blog you can e mail your entry to Dorothy
