Sketch Saturday #30

It's week 30 over at Sketch Saturday this week, haven't the weeks just flown by eh?!
Here is my card, I have used yet more of my stampin up papers, I really can't get enough of these at the moment! I love this chocolate chip colour its so rich and warm looking, however in hindsight, I wish i'd backed each of the patterned papers onto perhaps a red or green plain paper so that the patterns would have stood out better. But saying that I still like the combination together.
I have stamped 2 Magnolia images and used watercolour pencils to colour them in, the flower is just a small woodware scalloped circle punch which I cut and shaped to look like a flower then added the leaves and the pearlised button in the centre.


Can I take this opportunity to wish each and everyone of you a Very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year!
Love, Jo xx

  1. A lovely card Jo! I know what you mean with the backing papers but the way you did the card the image is more on the foreground and since you did a great job colouring that isn't a bad thing :). I told you before but I want to wish you a very merry Christmas sweetie. Count your blessings and enjoy time with the ones you love!! I know I will speak with you before the New Year so no New Years wishes yet :). Take care sweetie!!
