Freshly Made Sketches: Poinsettia Peace

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Cécile and here’s what I did with it. I definitely took some liberties!!
Peace Poinsettia

I normally stick pretty close to the sketch but I recently sorted my not-yet-used Christmas stash (which is still overflowing and some products date back years) and I pulled out those that I am absolutely definitely for-sure going to use this year. Then I looked at the sketch and realized I hadn't pulled out anything close to a those circles.  But I had pulled out a poinsettia that's roughly circular.  Of course, the leaves aren't close to circles but I got the right number of them in the right directions and even the right sizes!  So I'm going with it.

The die set is a recent addition to my stash, but definitely not new. I hadn't noticed the Seasonal Sketches set before it retired but I'm glad I did. LOVE the look and, retired or not, it will be used over the years.  (Greta's card is what caught my eye - a totally different look with gorgeous results.)

  2. It's close enough for me Kim and it's SO PRETTY!

  3. How about that?! So glad my card inspired you to get the set & make this beauty! Shows it's a great purchase as it can look totally different depending on what you do! Now you've inspired me!

  4. This die set is one of my favourite Christmas dies and you've used it to make a gorgeous card!

  5. You were right to take some liberties, this card is delightful with this gorgeous bloom.

  6. Gorgeous card. Love the colors of that pretty poinsettia. I think it fits the sketch fine. I had to pin it for inspiration. TFS
