He's checking his list....

Evening Folks in Blogland
All my family left yesterday morning so have had a relaxing couple of days.  And what better way to spend it than in my crafty room.  Did have to do a bit of sorting out in there as it was a makeshift bedroom for my Mum over Christmas Day and Boxing Day.  I also had to make room for all my crafty goodies that I got for Christmas.  Must say I was a very lucky girl.
I spotted this sketch at Sketch Saturday and decided to make a Christmas card - well, I did have all my christmas stash out and might as well make a start on next year lol.
The topper is from Papermania, as are the papers used.  I used kraft card to create the card blank.  Kraft card was also used for the matting and layering.  Did some embossing with my snowflakes folder on the white card.  Added three small red flowers, a sentiment and some festive red ribbons.
I have also decided to try and spend a bit more time on the inside of the card.  I have always added an insert but they have tended to be quite plain.  This is how the inside of this card looks.
I thought it came out quite well.  What do you think?
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday - #186
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges - #69 Holiday Gifts

Thanks for looking.  Please feel free to leave any comments.  I love receiving and reading them.
Bye for now

Hello, Thank you for taking part in our Sketch Saturday challenge, your card is lovely, and it's never too early to make more christmas cards :)

I already chose a winner for the challenge, this was a genuine mistake. I'm sorry about that.

By way of an apology I have decided to give another prize. All entrants from #61 onwards will be entered twice.
