December 1st? You've got to be kidding me!!!

Just what happened to the month of November?  Well, it's gone.  And it's December.  That means I have to flip my calendar in the kitchen; I need to put the new registration card in my car; the Discover bill is due; and, most importantly.....

 Sparkle N Sprinkle has a new Monthly Challenge.  

For December, it is a sketch challenge.  I really like this type of challenge because it gives you a framework for your card but you can still do your own thing with your papers and embellishments.  Our design team has made some great samples for you.  Be sure to go to the SNS Monthly Challenge Blog and take a look.  Then give it a try.  You might even win something.  I did and now I'm hooked on SNS products.

This is the card I made for this month's challenge:

I die cut a  scallopped oval from an adhesive sheet, removed the protective paper, and rubbed Jasper Blue Velvet Glitter into the sticky side.  Once you rub that ultra fine glitter into the adhesive that glitter is there to stay.  Then I stamped my sentiment right on the glittered oval with Staz-On ink (Not a speck of glitter on my stamp or ink pad).  You can find the complete instructions for making this card here, as well as pictures and instructions for all the designers' cards.

I'd love to see your take on the sketch.
