Poinsettia Sketch

I discovered the Dirty Dozen Christmas (Sketch) Challenges on SCS this year and have enjoyed making a card each month. Yes, I know (now) that these challenges have been going on for ten years, but I had no clue. Sometimes I think I have my head in the sand. But I digress. This being June, it's my sixth time to participate.

This month's sketch:

You will notice I took some creative liberty with my card. For one thing, the sketch looks square, but I rarely make square cards, since most of my cards get mailed and square ones require extra postage. Another difference with my card is the smaller square/rectangle on the sketch is the poinsettia on my card.

I really wish the layers of the poinsettia showed up in the photo. There are three of them, each popped up with foam to give the flower some wonderful depth.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
