Cupcake sketch with a little Gina

For Taylor's Cupcake sketch this week (TECC37), I decided to make a Christmas card. I am waaay behind this year and I gotta start stocking up. So pretty much all my challenge cards from now until December should be Christmas! LOL!
Can I just say that I FELL in love with the Christmas images that Gina K released this month?!? This tree image is from The Magic of Christmas set and is colored with copic markers. The sentiment is from SU! So Many Sayings and is embossed with white EP. I used some scraps of the SU! retired Christmas DP Wintergreen. I really like this sketch, it allows you to use up those scraps you been hanging on to! The background panel was embossed with the snowflake EF and the ribbon is the striped organdy from Pinkhedgehog Papercrafts. I used my MS Oak Leaf punch for a bit of texture tucked under the ribbon.

Card Deets:
Stamps - The Magic of Christmas, So many sayings
Paper - Artichoke, celery, sage shadow, white, Wintergreen DP
Accessories - circle nesties, snowflake EF, copic markers, white EP, white brads, ribbon, branch punch, stickles, white gel pen, paper piercer
