First Christmas - Merry Monday 62 Sketch Challenge

Pin It Now! Hi crafty friends!  An interesting sketch from Merry Monday this week!  Classic shapes and lines, but it's a little off center, giving it an interesting look.  Here's the sketch:
I turned the sketch on its side and used one of my favorites, First Christmas, for the focal point.

The sentiment was first heat embossed in white, then Baby Jesus was stamped in Versamark and sprinkled first with clear, then with polysparkle. All the edges were sponged with Early Espresso, and the brads at the top are coordinating glimmer brads.

Are you in the mood for Christmas cards among all the sunshine?  Head over to Lesley's blog and play along!
