Christmas Challenges

I decided to do two separate challenges today, one a colour challenge from Just Add Ink and the other a sketch challenge from Stamping 411. It was only after I had finished both cards and wondering whether to do two bog posts on separate days when I realised I had used the same sketch for both cards! Serves me right for having my sketch book open while I was making both, lol.
