Sketch Saturday #234

It's Saturday which means another fab sketch from
Sponsored by the wonderful

I have coloured up my Sugar Nellie "Poinsettia Girl" with Copics and used her on an old favourite K&Co DP. My sentiment is an oversized brad from my stash. I didn't want to obscure the pretty baubles but I did want to add a Marianne Poinsettia die so I have obscured some of my sketch elements. Hopefully it is still visible but just in case...It looks like this!  
I made banner ends for my horizontals and I did weave them beneath the vertical but you just can't see that anymore.  Whoops! 
I am entering my card into the challenge at Stamping Sensations which is for a "Traditional Christmas Card" and Winter Wonderland who want to see "baubles".  You can't get much more traditional than red, green and gold with baubles and poinsettias!

A lovely Christmas card Lesley and that backing DP gives it an almost vintage feel.

Hi sweetie this is just gorgeous, would you believe I've not seen this stamp before but I really like it it lush & I'm loving the colours.

Eeee missy where have you been, not knowing who the Cullens I love Vampire movies but they have to have a good story to them & I hate bad acting & corny films so I dont watch them, hubster will, if it has a vampire or zombie he will watch it lol.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

Ref the peacocks , I live near to a stately home, and they come over to my garden from there . I think they are beautiful but the other villagers hate them, they say they make too much noise. Hugs Elaine
