Saturated Canary at Sketch N Stash

Morning, we have a new challenge for you at Sketch N Stash today and  a free choice of Sketch  for you! Yes, you can choose any sketch you like from our back catalogue which you can find here.  Just take a look, pick a sketch, and show that along with your card on your post!
I've picked an early sketch, Number 37 which I'd not used before:
And, as we're being sponsored by Saturated Canary this challenge, the Design Team were lucky enough to be given a fabulous SC to work with, so love these images so I was thrilled!!
You too, could win a couple of images from Saturated Canary if you play along with us, so do join in the challenge!

I've used Christmas Nutcracker which you can find here.  She 's a beaut!!
My paper is a Magnolia 12x12 sheet bought in the sale a while ago and I'v teamed it up with an embossed panel using the sought after Tied Together folder which I bought from MaddyLisa Crafts who were being very sensible and only allowing one per order so that they were available to genuine crafters and not just to people who hoped to make a  quick buck with them on Ebay!! Oh this was my new item from Stash!
The old item from my stash was the poinsetta which is cut with  a Marianne Die and I've used some black enamel on the centre piece to give it some texture and gloss.  The wreath is a Memory Box die that I can't remember the name of at the minute!! Ribbon and Pearl are from stash.
Take a peek here to check out the fabulous makes by my SNS teamies here.

Well that's it from me for now - still off work, so I'm off for a crafting day and a natter with my besty, Lesley.
