Two Sketch Challenges

Both of the weekly blog challenges that I have been following have sketches for this week, so I am not able to combine them into a single card.

The Heart 2 Heart challenge this week is H2H25, and I created a Christmas card using the Holiday Trinkets stamp set and Emporium papers.  Texture was added to the Cocoa cardstock using the Cuttlebug - Mesh embossing folder.  When creating Christmas cards, be sure to consider all of your patterned papers, not just ones that are specifically designed for Christmas.

For the Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO157), I used a cute little butterfly and sentiment from the Butterfly Kiss stamp set along with patterned papers from the Sweet Home My Reflections kit.
