Photo Play Best of Christmas papers with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and lots of dies

Hello and welcome to the latest inspiration for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  I knew I had the perfect dies to begin, the Sue Wilson Shadow Box Wedding die set.  I knew they had appropriately scaled squares and rectangles.  The hardest part was choosing the papers.

Here is the sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge:

A close up of the patterns.  I chose a 6x6 paper xmas paper pad from my stash.  This happens to be Photo Play Best of Christmas 6x6 papers which is a mash up of their plaid xmas and another one.  The snowmen were perfect for the tiny squares.

A side view.  I used Karen Burniston words and red paper from the same paper pad to it matched.  The holly background paper is cut with a Spellbinders rectangle pierced die.
