Sketch #9 at X-mas and B-day Cards Challenge

Monday already!!
And that means a new sketch over at Just Christmas and Birthday cards.
This weeks sketch is made by Amanda, and I had a lot of trouble with this one.
The lay-out leaves a lot of open space and I really had no idea how to fill this up.
I adjusted the measurements a bit to fill the cards, and this is as good as it gets.
The birthday card is for one of Ruby's friends who's celebrating her 6th birthday this Saturday.
Happy colours and some cute angels are just right for a little girl.

Last Thursday I was doing a little shopping at one of the scrapbookstores in the neighbourhood and I fell in love with this great stamp.
The text says: Joy, love, peace, happiness, goodwill and generosity towards men.
Laughter and kindness.
Hapy Hollidays, this is what it's all about.
Merry Christmas to you and all you love.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
xoxo Karin

Oh, Karin, I wish I was 6 years old - I LOVE that angels card! :)

The stamp is breath taking! You were lucky and clever to buy it.

I was surprised to read that you've been having trouble with the sketch. For me, it was the best one so far :D. I immediately "saw" both my cards and started making them.

Thank you for the adorable music, we seem to be sharing the same favourites artists/bands/Christmas songs. Lovely!

Hugs,
Mada
