     Maybe it's just me, but every once in a while, I'll see a sketch that will keep nagging at me until I try it. That's the situation with this week's Sketch Saturday layout. It was just different enough to stick in my mind.
     The JOY stamp is from QKR Stampede, colored with pencils. For the three small elements, I punched tags from snippets of Christmas patterned paper that echoed the elements in the JOY stamp -- candy canes, holly, and Christmas decorations. Each is attached with a small silver brad, which also supplied an embellishment to draw attention to the sentiment below, a stamp from an unknown source.

This card is for these challenges:
ABC Christmas -- J is for Joy
Rudolph Days for May -- anything Christmas
Crafting by Designs -- Getting Ready for Christmas/Christmas card
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday -- use two stamps
