Freshly Made Sketches 536

Pardon my late entry (again) for our newest Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  I've got to say that the circles on the sketch initially put me in a bit of a panic, but after poking around in my stash I came up with a card that makes me so happy!  Karren is our hostess and her sketch got me thinking out of the box!

So, when I first saw the sketch I was thinking about something along the lines of three flowers, or maybe three geometric shapes, or maybe three butterflies.  But as I was looking through my stash I stumbled on this JUMBO stamp set from The Ton which had three poinsettias in roughly the same placement as the circles.  Perfect!

I embossed the background with some subtle burlap texture because I didn't like the flowers against a plain white background.  The poinsettias and leaves have amazing dimension - perfect with the textured background - and the black die-cut sentiment just makes the whole thing pop!  I love this card!
