WM Sketch Challenge #93 and WM April Christmas Card Challenge

Wow, that is a big title, isn't it?  Today I made a card for April's Waltzingmouse Christmas card challenge based on this weeks WM Sketch Challenge #93.  This weeks sketch is one by Mischief Maker Karin Akesdotter.  She gave us a really cute sketch to use:
Here's my card:
Our WM Christmas card challenge this month was to use either a bird or a "fabulous forest".  I decided to create my own little Christmas tree forest.  I used  A Cottage Christmas to stamp my own little forest scene which is paper pieced onto some cute patterned paper from the Echo Park, Holly Jolly Christmas paper pack.  I used PTI Tag Sale #4 as the base of my tag and layered on a nestie circle diecut.  I stamped a great circle image from WM Faux Fun Circles and was so excited to see it fits perfectly on the Tag Sale die.  I added a snowflake border, red stitching, tiny red pearls and woodgrain embossing to the kraft cardbase.  The sentiment is from WM Compliments of the Season.  At the last minute, I added some red twine, snowflake brad and a tiny little red pearl to the tag.
If you haven't heard about the Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenge, here's a link.  There is a really great prize up for grabs at the end of the year to one lucky person who participates every month.  I am crossing my fingers it is me!

I love the sweet scene you created on your tag. What a great idea. And, I'm so jealous of your stitching--it really adds that finishing touch to your card.
