I love making my cards "clean & simple"!!! I'm not really one to add all kinds of lace & ephemera & stuff! 
So I enjoy using the sketch challenges on the Clean & Simple blog as a 
kick start to some of my cards!

So here's the current sketch:
Simple, right?

I decided to make a Christmas card with it! Now I'm totally not into Christmas yet, but when I was looking for stamp sets to use, I passed over my new Christmas stamps just waiting for some love! So I said, what the heck!

Here's the card I came up with:

I used the Wonderful Wreath from the Holiday Catalog as the base where the dots are in the sketch. See, the designs don't need to be exact-just a guideline.
 I love my Natural White cardstock for a card base. It's a little thicker than the Whisper White, & has a more "distressed" texture.  
The Merry Christmas sentiment comes from Sassy Salutations! The beautiful DSP is from the Season of Style DSP pack-again, in the Holiday Catalog!
 I must admit, the ribbon is retired from last year's Holiday Catalog, but since I only have a bit left, I thought it worked with this card!  Finish it off with some Rhinestone Basic Jewels &it's done!!

So while a bit early for Christmas, I guess I have a good start on a design for my cards!!! Just wanted to share a CAS today!

Happy Stampin'!!!!
