Freshly Made Sketches: Peace Joy Love

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Jacquie.

I'm still plugging away on Christmas cards  I'm in good shape but I've have sworn to myself that I'm not going to hate December this year.  (LOVE Christmas Eve and Christmas Day - don't so much like the hustle, bustle and stress leading up to it.)  Part of the stress is cards and I hate being stressed over  a hobby!!  So I saw the sketch - and I saw poinsettias!!

FMS 406

I love those dimensional poinsettias - it's a die set from Paper Smooches that is one of my favorites (yes, I have a few other poinsettia dies).  I like how they layer - and there's actually even a bigger one in the set so the poinsettias can take center stage.

I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Stamps: Simon Says Stamp Merry Everything
Dies: Paper Smooches Poinsettia dies, Taylored Expressions Inside Bracket Stacklets and Stitched Rectangle Stacklets

  1. I love these poinsettias and they provide a beautiful pop of color on this pretty card.

  2. This is STUNNING!! LOVE the poinsettias!!

  3. Oh, just gorgeous! Love your pic too, the colours of the berry branches match your card perfectly. Totally in Christmas mood and I could'n agree more on the way you think about the Holliday Season. :-)
    I love the spirit of Christmas and the gatherings with everyone you love, but all the busy stuff around it not so much. :-)
    Your card is so lovely, you could easily make lots of it!!

  4. This card is just amazing Kim! I love those poinsettias! The gold embossed sentiment is perfect! Just stunning for Christmas!

  5. A classic Christmas beauty! And why do we stress ourselves?!?!?! I can so relate!

  6. "Peace, Joy, Love" in gold make the best Christmas Wishes I can think of.
