Today I decided to give this sketch a try. Tammy posted it on her blog
but I didn't have any Ovals and so I thought that I couldn't participate. She emailed me right away and assured me that it would be okay to use any shape just so long as it matched the sketch. Well I couldn't not do a card after that so here is what I came up with.
I used (Christmas Window - Penny Black) for my focal image. I watercolored it with Crayons, Ink refills and an Aqua Painter. I added Icicle Stickles to the flower centers and highlighted the stars with a Yellow Spice Glitter Pen and the petals of the Poinsettia with a Clear Spica glitter pen to add some shimmer. Then I mounted it to a piece of Always Artichoke card stoke that I did some faux stitching on and distressed the edges. This was then mounted on a piece of Bravo Burgundy Card Stock. My card base is Always Artichoke layered with Bravo Burgundy and some retired designer paper from Stampin'Up!. - I embossed the sentiment (Hero Arts) with Claret Tapestry EP (PSX) and added some faux pink jewels underneath part of the sentiment. I also tied Artichoke Grosgrain ribbon around the card. The main panel was raised with foam mounting tape
