Freshly Made Sketches 615

I'm continuing a mad dash of making enough Christmas cards to mail to friends and family and this week's Freshly Made Sketches provided a great layout.  Our hostess this week is Karren and many thanks to her because the circle on the sketch was a poinsettia no-brainer for me!  We are also joined this week by guest designer Nancy Leppek, one of our 600th sketch challenge winners.  

I used the lovely velvet paper in my stash to create the poinsettia.  It is quite decadent in real life!  I paired it with a textured background and some ancient patterned paper for a quick and easy card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Very pretty. I love the poinsettia and have made quite a few with poinsettias. I like your neutral background too. Great take on the sketch. TFS

I need to get out more often - I've never seen velvet paper before but just wowsah! That poinsettia is gorgeous and I love the kraft colors that look perfect with the red bloom. Beautiful card with that great sketch!

As usual, this is another CAS card that is pure perfection! Thanks for having me at FMS as your guest and Happy Holidays to you, Jen!
