Happy Tuesday everyone!  It is once again time for this weeks Papertake Weekly challenge.  Our challenge this week is another wonderful sketch from our own Dawny P.  Why don't you join us and play along?

I don't know about you but every year I search for a design for my Christmas cards that is mailable.  You know what I mean, not to many layers, nothing to lumpy or bumpy to make the postman go well postal and make me pay $1 for each card I need to mail.  When I first saw the new Our Daily Bread Designs set Warm Wishes I knew that I had found this years card because it doesn't get any more mailable then a super clean and simple one layer card.  On this card I did use some taffeta ribbon which lays really flat and a little tree charm, tho the charm will be left off of the ones I mass produce.  I added a couple of touches of glitter to the snow and some touches of flower soft just to give the card a little interest.
Now hop on over and visit Patter and see what loveliness she has in store for you.

This card is also for this weeks Papertake Weekly challenge which is an anything goes challenge with the option to add glitter or bling.  Why don't you join us and play along, after you finish the blog hop of course!

What I used:
GP white
Versafine black, Memento black
clear embossing powder, flower soft, glitter pen
Copic Markers
SU ribbon, charm
