Friday Sketch challenge - sketch 57

Hello everyone

time for the latest FSC - sketch 57!

this is the sketch
As designed by fellow DT Alison, and the prize is for $20 to spend online - got to be worth a go hasn't it!

I saw this a perfect opportunity to make another Christmas card - one for our lovely neighbours.

I dusted off an old red and green trimcraft paper pack for the backing papers, and matted and layered with a lovely rich dark green.  The image is a Lili of the Valley one, coloured with promarkers. (vanilla, caramel, tan, cool grey 1, 2, 3 and 4, ruby, poppy, olive green, moss green, lime green)
the sentiment is one from Marianne die and stamp set. I then used a paper punch for the border, holly and poinsettias (which were actually punched from a leaf shape and layered up on a scrap of card to make the flower) splodged lots of stickles around it, and voila - from our family to yours!#

We'd love to see you over at Friday Sketch Challenge so why not pop over and have a go!  can't wait to see what everyone creates...

I'd also like to enter this into:
