365 Cards: Sketchy Sunday!

Happy weekend everybody! Again, it went by TOO fast and already we are looking into the face of the routine of a new week, but all in all, how great was your weekend? I had a glorious time! So let's get today started right! Our Sunday sketch brought to you by Pam over at 365 Cards:

Here is my take on it:
Now before you say... "uh, Kristie, did you even follow the sketch???" Let me point out that I did follow it the best I could. I had so many elements and for some reason they weren't working for me AT ALL! I was scratching my head, grunting and even muttering under my breath. I couldn't get it figured out! I knew I wanted a holiday card, cause lets face it... I'm excited! I had stockings and bells, and music paper and on and on and on, but to no avail! So I picked these papers on purpose. The stripes on the right representing part of the sketch and if you look closely:
You can see my two strips of glitter above and below my tag. That is to represent the strips on the left side of the sketch. I just happened to move my tag from the bottom corner to the middle. It looked a bit better that way considering its size. I also stitched a zigzag in the middle which also represents one element of the sketch. So I really did follow it...kind-of. What do you think??

Ok. ok! I will follow the rules better next time! Until then, I hope you have an inspiring and sketchy Sunday!
