3 Ways With Sketches - No.2

Hello friends
Busy day for me today, I've got a class in my studio this morning and then this afternoon I'm off to visit a local craft group, they have invited me along for a chat - I readily agreed because I enjoy a good natter!

The card featured today is another one created using the sketch below.
Again, I've pretty much replicated the sketch using Layered Poinsettias as my three
embellishments down the side.
Here is the simple sketch.

I'm going to try my hand at designing some sketches, I will explore buttons on my computer
that I've never used before!  Right, I had better get organised - I'm looking forward to meeting
another group of crafters at my class this morning and, talking of classes -
if you click on my Spellbinders Academy button on my sidebar
I have uploaded some more - all very festive.  It's not too long before Santa visits  -
in fact just 100 days!
Enjoy your weekend dear friends.

Hi Christine - I would never have put these papers together - so I am so glad that you have because I would have been wrong. They look gorgeous and I love this design. Your card is beautiful.

I think I will try this sketch very soon.
