C4C366 Previous Sketch , Christmas Twist Card

Good morning friends

It's Saturday so that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. Our December 2016 Hostess is Frances Byrne, and this is the last C4C Challenge of 2016.

Frances' challenge is a fun one - Create a card using your favorite “Crazy” sketch from our 2016 sketches. Check out the C4C Blog to see all the sketches in one convenient spot.  

I chose Peggy's sketch C4C323, from February 2016. Click here to see that post, with all the fun takes on the original sketch.

Here is the front of my card with the sketch below it ...

Inside, I made it a Pop-Up with the Twist Circle Pop-Up by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. See how the decoration is sideways as the card is opened?

Then it twists and pops up in the centre of the card. The centre circle seemed just perfect for the coordinating wreath sticker. I added some 'Merry Christmas' Washi Tape to the front and a small piece inside, and the matted white circle is where we can add our signature.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C364. Then, we will see you in the New Year! Best Wishes to all the Crazy 4 Challenges participants, Design Team and followers.

****NOTE:  I have decided to move my cards and paper crafting to Painted Mountain Cards in the New Year. I've been toying around with the idea for a long while, and this seems like a good time to make the change. I will leave this blog open, as there are frequent hits from Pinterest and over 5 years worth of cards etc to reference.
