Christmas card/sketch challenge

Welcome! I decided to try the new sketch challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. Here is the really neat sketch:

It would make a fabulous Clean and Simple Card, which I'm pretty sure I'm physically unable to make!
I love Christmas villages (I have one) and the sketch just gave me the idea to make a "mini village" card using digi house stamps from Vera Lane Studio. I photographed my card flat so you may be able to see that I popped up the middle house.
 I definitely will use this sketch again and keep trying for that elusive Clean and Simple! I might try this same idea again with Christmas houses, but make them smaller and use just black, white and red...hmm.
Don't ya just love these Vera Lane Studio houses? I added the tiny bow to the center one to make a wreath.
