The Sugar Bowl

There is a sketch and a colour combo over at The Sugar Bowl for black, white and one other colour.  It was a great sketch and I wish I had stuck more rigidly to it because I think my card's likeability went down a notch after I added a ribbon and a sentiment.
Papers are Stampin Up I think.  The poinsettia is a Marianne die (and I don't like the little brad in the centre either) and the ribbon is from stash.
I don't have much time before this challenge ends so this is just a quickie post.  Hope you're all keeping warm somewhere!
Postscript:  I forgot to say that my image is a Leanne Ellis and is coloured with Copics, Promarkers and blending pencils.

Lesley, this is so great!! Awesome colour combo and I love all your little extras! Particularly jealous of your poinsettia embossing! Still can't get mine to emboss like this in my cuttlebug and that's despite your tutorial on Saturday!! Beautiful soft shading too! Juliexx

Beautiful card Lesley....I think you're being too hard on yourself!
Red is a perfect compliment to the black and white, and a beautifully coloured image.
Love the pointsettia too.

Thanks for playing in the Sugar Bowl challenge.

Lesley, your card is beautiful. Black and white and 1 other colour is a favorite colour combo of mine, so this is a real treat for me. The image is so sweet and you've coloured her beautifully. Love your take of sketch and your DP's are gorgeous. Your card is beautifully put together. Love it.
