Sketch challenge at Christmas Card Throwdown

Christmas Card Throwdown has a new format (formerly called 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, it now offers a challenge twice a month; once a week must have been tough to administer!).  Once again I would like to try to keep up with their challenges and finish the year with a good stack of Christmas cards or have good cards to send to Send A Smile 4 Kids. We'll see how I do with my resolution.

It's a sketch challenge at CCT and here's the sketch:
 
And here is the card I made. You can see it is an A2 rectangle and I flipped the sketch:                   
 
 
Digital stamps: Vera Lane Studio.etsy.com:  "Maple"
Copics
DP: Momenta
 
I had a bit of a challenge executing my idea but I had fun, especially coloring Maple. I cut a little sprig of holly from another dp to tuck in her pocket.
Thanks for stopping by; hope you'll visit again soon,
Sherry

I love your take on the challenge, Sherry! And little Maple looks adorable pointing up to the star on your designer Christmas tree! Thanks for reminding me - I need to start making Christmas cards now, so that I don't end up sending shop-bought ones next December. x

Wonderful card and it would be great for anyone but especially one of the SAS kids. Nice take on the challenge, Sherry. Hope this New Year is bringing you health and happiness. We had some terribly cold weather yesterday but will be going up to the 50's by tomorrow.
