I'm Getting Sketchy Again

Hello, friends!  You might say I'm "on a roll" this weekend.  I got several cards done before I wet to the Policemen's Ball Friday night, I had some scheduled ahead of time, and I've even gotten some finished since I got back home.  Now, if I can just get some baking and Christmas shopping done, I'll be in great shape.  I'm SUCH a procrastinator.
I created this card following a sweet sketch shared this week over on the Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog.  It's always nice to get a starting place, and sketches are a great place for that inspiration.  I followed their sketch, and this is what I came up with.
I used Crate Paper Bundled Up patterned papers and tag, machine stitching, a stamped sentiment, some Pink Paislee stars with gold polka dots, lace, seam binding, stitched ribbon, silver metallic string, gold metallic string, and some silver jingle bells.

DRS Designs Challenge Blog - Challenge #204 - Silver or Gold - I don't own any DRS Designs sweet stamp sets yet, but I used a stamped sentiment from a set I had on hand,

Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog - Challenge Week #391 - This was a really sweet sketch that is easy to follow.  Come and play along!

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says "Tag It" - I added my tag to the right-hand side of my card.  In fact, my second photo is a close-up shot of the tag.  It's from Crate Paper Bundled Up line, available at Simon Says Stamp.
