Hope those of you celebrating Christmas today enjoy plenty of love and comfort with family and friends.  Our neighbors are hosting a get together this morning and then we’ll hit some of the fantastic movies being released in the theaters (a Fish family tradition)!

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge (PPA233).  I rotated it 90 degrees and used a little creative license to imitate the sketch triangles with the roses in the die cut and bow.  Try the PPA sketch yourself this week!

My neutral color palette and design were also inspired by this darling sweater from Garnet Hill.

  12. You get two of the “rose” die cuts in the embellishments kit. However, I agree. This would make a fantastic die!

  13. Spectacular card can be used for so many occasions! It’s stunning! A must have stamp set and die cuts. Hoping Stampin’ Up! Comes out with the actual die – that would be fantastic!!
