Retro Sketches #22

am still building on my Christmas card stash. 
This card is based on the sketch challenge this week at Retro Sketches. I cut my decorative shape and layers with the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  The shape is meant to be part of a mini album… works great for cards as well though!  Here is the original sketch-
