Christmas SR69 & PPA91

DSCF4052

For my weekly Christmas card, I used the Stampin Royalty sketch today along with the challenge from Pals Paper Arts, which was buttons. Here’s the sketch:

I totally spaced out on seeing the panel behind the Top Note image….hope the challenge police don’t kick me out! Anyway, this card didn’t translate to paper the way I had envisioned, but I kept at it as I had already invested the time:

I hadn’t done any vintage for a while, and these Newsprint papers were neglected, so I thought they would look good with this silhouette Christmas set, Welcome Christmas. I pulled some little buttons from my stash for the button theme.

It has been very warm & humid for this time of the year, and we’re supposed to get severe storms later today. My heart goes out to those across the country who were affected by the tornadoes—some scary stuff! Anyway, despite the breeze and fans, sometimes when one wakes up from one’s nap, one is still a bit sweaty:
