Feeling Sketchy?

What an amazing amount of entries there were for last week's Scrapbook Sister's challenge, hopefully this week "A  Sketch" will tempt just as many. Now I don't usually follow sketches and when I realised that it was the theme for this week I panicked a bit, I needn't have worried though as it is a lovely one to follow and to be honest, apart from the card stock,all of the papers were scraps left over from last year's cards.  The stamp is also a last year's forever friends set.

Here's the sketch if you fancy giving it a go we'd all love to see what you come up with.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:-
ABC Christmas,Yipee,anything goes,
Belli 132,Christmas,
Crafty Creations 147,Card with sentiment,
Divas By Design 16, Anything goes,
FBC 76,Christmas,
MMCS35,Traditional Christmas,
Penny's 68, Merry Christmas,
CMP5,Christmas colours,
Tuesday Throwdown 77, Tis the season.
Thanks for stopping by,

A great take on the sketch Julie and I love topiary trees, something so elegant about them.

I always wanted to get one to stand at my front door just so I could put pretty little red bows all over it at Christmas.
