Nutcracker Sweet


Have you seen the new Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet paper packs?  And the coordinating Nutcracker Sweet rubber stamps from Hampton Arts?  They are so beautiful and very fun to color.  For my card today, I followed this fabulous sketch I found while searching Feline Playful for a challenge.  I love sketches with lots of layers.  This has 5 different patterned papers along with 5 mat layers for those papers, phew, that is a lot of layers.  But I love this card!  Finished size is 6" square.
