December Week 1 OSW Recap and Viewfinder

Hey Viva la Verve-ers!  It's Julee popping in today with this week's recap and Viva la Viewfinder. I'm so glad you guys are enjoying the One Sheet Wonder challenge this month!  It's been fun seeing the cards popping into the gallery.  Today I'm sharing another set of cards I made using this month's template, along with a few of my favorites link ups from this week.

Here is my sample card set using the Holiday Treats set.
You can view the cards individually on my blog, Poetic Artistry.

You can do the sketches individually or use the template provided to make the four card set, it's up to you. The template is designed for a 6 x 6" sheet of double-sided paper.  In the sketches, I've also added circles (but you could substitute  a different shape) cut from neutral cardstock  and hand cut banner ends on a couple of the pieces.

Here's the link to the full printable PDF of the template. For individual sketch graphics, please see the original challenge post.


And here are a few cards from the linky this week that caught my eye:

Lea Lawson made a beautiful 4 card set.  Love the black accents with the traditional red and green color combo.

Jen Bennett also made a lovely  4 card set, all utilizing this fun Christmas wreath.  Wish I had a big puffy one like that for my door!

I just love this card by Lyn using the Great Friend set.  So pretty and even though this isn't a holiday card, that beautiful purple flower has visions of sugarplums dancing through my head!

And finally this soft, beautiful creation from Rosemary using Peace on Earth had me staring for a while.  Pure simplicity.
Beautiful cards, everyone!  Thank you for joining in the challenge and keep 'em coming!  I'll be back next week with another card set and some more featured cards.
