Fleece Navidad ~ CCMC431, PP319

Hi fellow stampers!  Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge has rolled around again and it's sketch week!  
I'm really excited about this card!  I've wanted to do a sheep Christmas card ever since I got this{Barnyard Babies} set and just never got around to it for one reason or another.  I really love the punny sentiment that goes with the sheep.  Fleece Navidad!  It make me chuckle!  
When I saw the challenge sketch I thought this would be my chance to make one santa sheep stand out among the rest!  I'm thrilled with the outcome.  I also worked in The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.  You know I love a tic-tac-toe!  My card can go two ways, actually!  It takes in the three down the left side: red, Santa, and Diecut, and across the top with red, glitter and snowflakes.  
Ok, ok...the only diecut on the card is the little sentiment banner, but hey, it's still a diecut!

I used my Warmth and Cheer DSP again on this project because the sweater motif goes so well with the sheep.  

The little tiny holly is from the {Christmas Pines} set.  I stamped it in garden green, fussy cut it out, and punched the teeny tiny holy berries out of red glimmer paper.  I ran my black marker around the edge of the holly leaves to make the image look outlined to coordinate with the sheep.

I hope you'll be able to join us for this week's challenge at CCMC!
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
