Authentique card

Hello, friends:}


***Please scroll down or click HERE for my Swimming for Katie card! 


I have a quick post for you tonight--I made this Holiday card using the Authentique card sketch. I have to explain that I did use the sketch for this card....but I went a bit crazy and moved some of the pieces around! I couldn't believe it when I finished my card--it doesn't look anything like what I sketched out! LOL! Hope it still counts:} I used my Authentique Wonder collection along with my Hot Concoctions Paper Smooches images. And I LOVE this ribbon {available at The Ribbon Carousel}- it's perfect for Holiday cards! LOVE how this turned out--and I have to admit...I don't drink coffee or tea...so I was unsure if my fluff on the top of this cup was right (but I think it looks cute, so I kept it!). 
And just in case you wanted to know "How in the world did this match the sketch?"....
That's it for me today. Be sure to stop by tomorrow for another PDCC creation--LOVE it! And don't forget to stop by the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge! Use this image for your inspiration!!! Can't wait to see what you make! 


Thanks so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

I love this! I have that stamp set and have yet to use it. Working full time sure makes it hard to find time to craft.
