Clearly Inspired Sketch Challenge

Ahhh, happy Friday!! I have a day off and I plan on doing nothing but stamp!!! This card is for the Clearly Inspired Challenge. Today's challenge is a sketch, a favorite of mine!! Play along and have fun with it. I used the December Flower of the Month set, adding color with watercolor pencils (for a change, I know!). I then cut the poinsettia out and popped it up on the nestie oval with pop dots. A little glitter fancies up the center. The designer paper is Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses. Colors include pomegranate, olive, pink and Baja breeze. The sentiment comes from the Christmas Scriptures set. The wide satin ribbon bow tied so easily, much to my surprise. I can tie a bow, just can't seem to ever get it to lay the way I want it to...this one, like I said, surprised me!
