Another Sweet Christmas

Here's the sketch for this week at {Freshly Made Sketches} and my take on it:

I went with non-traditional Christmas colors to make this "Sweetest Christmas" card -- turquoise, red and magenta.  I'm getting lots of use out of my new PapertreyInk stamp and die sets!  The mug, peppermint stick and sentiment are all from PTI's "Candy Cane Christmas" set.  I heat-embossed the mug in turquoise and the peppermint stick in red.  The mug turned out a little bit sparkly, which was a nice surprise! 

The magenta paper is from DCWV "Mango Frost" matstack and the woodgrain and polkadot paper is from Crate Paper's "Emma's Shoppe Collection".
