Skipping Stones Christmas Song Release and Sketch 97

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

Welcome to Sketch Challenge #97 and the release of Christmas Song! If you just came from Karen's blog, you are in the right place.  If you just happened along my blog today, start at the beginning of the hop at Skipping Stones Design.  The entire hop order is there and you can hop from blog to blog with ease.
Be sure to hop along and leave comments on all the fabulous designers’ blogs.  This month we are welcoming Andrea EwenTammy Tutterow and Karen Christensen to our team as Guest Designers! 

Cristina Kowalczyk will be providing all the fabulous sketch inspiration this month including the sketch we're using in today's hop!

Here is the card I made using Christmas Song and Sketch 97. 

I stamped the tree image and sentiment in Versmark and embossed with gold embossing powder.  I also added a little ink to the Christmas tree image to achieve a more distressed look.  The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye.  

Head over to Shannon's blog for some more Skipping Stones Design inspiration!  In case you get lost clicking along, here is your blog hop order....
