Four Cards, Three Cartridges, Two Layers, and One Sketch

Hello Crafty Friends,

I am feeling quite festive today since I am making holiday cards. I found a sketch at Our Creative Corner and decided to use it to make a few different ones. The challenge is to use this very basic sketch, and "decorate" it! You can turn it on it's side or turn it upside-down or leave it like it is and then embellish or "decorate" it as much as you want!

What a great challenge!
