christmas card for dos challenges

last night i made this card for two challenges that are going on. the first one is 2 sketches 4 you and the other one is color throwdown! see below for the sketch and color inspiration:

great colors (i am after all in a christmas card making phase!), and great sketch! here's what i did:

i pleated the dark green patterned paper to make a fan, that i glued under the sentiment (which is from the cozy christmas stamp set at lawn fawn). i paper pieced the holly (also lawn fawn!) and adhered them down with glue dots. the funny thing is, none of the cardstock i used was from a chirstmas collection - but it so works!

i'm really trying to motivate myself to get some layouts done...but i just don't know where to begin!! i've never made a scrapbook for myself (but i have made loads of them for other people), so i have from the dawn of time until now worth of pictures! any ideas on what to start scrapping first?? i'm thinking i should start with my son (he's 2), but who knows?
