Freshly Made Sketches: Peace Love Joy

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

I had a very busy weekend - it was over in a blink of an eye. The work week started and I still hadn't  made a card for this week.  It had to be quick and easy. I went to my die stash and found something square. Then I grabbed Christmas paper. It still looked a little dull so I added a quick poinsettia. I finished this card while enjoying my morning cup of coffee before I got ready and ran off to work. And that is what I truly love about sketches - with the sketch as a starting point, it all came together in about 30 minutes!

The down-side of squeezing this out before a work day (especially with this past weekend's time change) is that I don't get home in time to take pictures while the sun is out so this isn't the world's best photo.  I'm not sure why the die cut doesn't look white - because it is as pure white as the base.  On the other hand, I did manage to capture the detail on the poinsettia and if you look really closely you can see that the background is textured!!

I hope to see you playing along with us this week!
