Challenge #4 - Holiday Greetings

Handmade greetings are so special during the holidays. Cards and thank-you notes made by hand for those you love add such a personal touch to the season, but it can often be hard during the harried days of November and December to find the time and inspiration to get them done. We have decided to jump start your creativity and inspire you to build up your holiday (or everyday!) card stash with a challenge series that will extend till after the first of the year designed specifically for that purpose!

For this week's installment of the challenge, I created a card sketch that can easily be adapted to whatever theme you choose. Create a card using this sketch and post a link to a place we can view your project in the comment thread, and you will be entered for a chance to win the prize package below: tons of fabulous rub-on goodies!

Please note: All submissions are due by next Wednesday, November 26. All projects should be new and created specifically for this challenge. Because of shipping costs, only US residents are qualified to win this week, but we of course would love to see all of your lovely work!

this is wonderful. I need to have a stash of cards like this. I never find the time when I need to send one. Thanks for the challenge. I'll try to get on it soon! The sketch itself is beautiful Amy. Great job on it and the examples ladies!

The ribbon looks all crooked in the photo but it looks so much better IRL. Oh, well....

Here's mine. I am making NINE sets of greeting cards (10 cards in each sets) as Christmas gifts, and this is the first card of the first set.
