Pretty Red Poinsettia

Everyone else is thinking Spring and here I am making a Christmas card.  Yes, there is a method to my madness.  I'm trying to make at least two Christmas cards a month.  When it comes time to send out my cards for the season, I'll be all ready and won't have to stress about not having those cards made.  So you see, not really madness at all, just the fact that we are having temperatures close to 80 degrees here in Iowa in May and I needed to cool things down. 

This card I made for the sketch challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches.  I flipped the sketch on it's side and must say I really like the way it turned out.  I even used some of my patterned paper that's been hanging around on the shelf.

Stamp Set:  Bells & Boughs (Stampin' Up!); Inks:  Copic Markers, Tuxedo Black Memento; Cardstock:  Whisper White (Stampin' Up!); Patterned Paper:  Merry Little Christmas (My Mind's Eye); Other:  Pearls, Golden Sunset Glitter Drops (Nuvo)

The sketch I used is from the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge,  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.
