UmWow November sketch challenge

UmWow has a super sketch for November's sketch challenge.  I followed it pretty closely, since I was running out of time.  The coloring of the photo is a little off, but it is the most recent one of our first grandchild (6 weeks old) and her happy little family. She's a cutie, and has a sweet personality!

Digistamps4Joy November Challenge

The November free digi from digistamps4joy's monthly Christmas challenge was actually 2 tag digis.  I used one of them for this card.  The other is a sweet and simple snowflake design.
I decided to paper piece the tree and present, and paint the ribbon.  I added a peel off sentiment, some sparkles for the tree and a couple of holiday ribbons to finish off the look.  The card base is a pre-printed one that came in a variety box, and I thought it fit the design nicely.  Thanks for taking a look,
