christmas card set - just add ink sketch

Oops. Before I bring in the bears I have to pop in with this set of cards which was inspired by a pad of PP I bought at the local dollar store (Tedi for anyone in the listening area!) and a sketch from Just Add Ink #385.

And since the challenge closes soon, I'm squeaking these in. Playing at:
HLS Anything Goes with Dies November 
Where Creativity meets C9- Christmas
The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes
12 Months of Christmas Linkup - Star Struck too!

The patterns on the paper inspired the "feel" I went for on each card with my take on the sketch.

Number one. Went with the busiest paper and kept the embellishing simple. But glittered! And I thought my latest product from Simon Says Stamp (thanks, Simon) would do well cut up for the three "banners".

Number two. One sheet of  PP fits two cards perfectly, so...

Number three. Stars go well with angels, don't you think?

Number four. The stars needed to be a bit bolder so golden they became!

Number five. This paper is such fun, had to embellish with "fun" vellum dots and a sparkly tree!

Hope you've enjoyed. I sure enjoyed creating within the restrictions of sketch and PP, just trying to create a different feel for each card. Back with the bears tomorrow!
