BYSHC Spring Into Christmas Linky Party - Day 2!

Prizes, sponsors and fun - what could be better motivation to get a jump on building your stash of holiday cards?!?! Take a look at this list of sponsors Crystal has arranged for the April Festivities on the BYSHC Blog

My card features a few of the Sizzix Funky Nordic dies with patterned papers from my stash.  The candle flame and light have a little detail from MFT's Lined By Hand background stamp,
which is clear embossed and sponged with yellow ink.  An oldie from Memory Box, called Winter Scattered Flakes, is stenciled in the background.  Some sparkle and Reverse Confetti's, Sparkle & Shine Sentiment finish off the card!

Does the layout look familiar?!?  That may be because it is April's BYSHC sketch!  Feel free to use it (or any of the other BYSHC sketches) for your Linky Party card.  If you use a sketch, we'd love you to link it in the BYSHC FB group Album!

Hope you feel inspired to join us.  Thanks for stopping my my blog!                                                                 In kindness, Cathy
