Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #42

*Please check out my Waltzingmouse sketch post below as well. Thanks!*

Hello again! This time I have a new sketch and card, but before I get to it, big thanks to all that play with my sketches each week! It truly is a rewarding experience, to see your unique and beautiful takes on it, and I LOVE sharing the joy of creating with you :)

This week I have another CAS design with a potential for building up if you so desire. I decided to go simple and let the stamps take the center stage, but I wouldn't mind giving it another try later (if time allows), with some pretty papers and layers.

I've been rummaging in my stamps and setting aside those that I'd still like to ink up this Holiday season... this poinsettia from Penny Black was the first one I grabbed. I inked it up only once before and I really don't have enough of it yet.
I was hesitating whether I want it Copic coloured or white embossed on red cardstock, and laziness won (I'd have to take out the embossing accessories from the cupboard in the other corner of the room, while my Copics are within the reach... yeah, I'm that lazy tonight, lol)


Supplies: cardstock: PTI (Rustic White), recycled kraft; stamps: Penny Black (Christmas Pride, Winter Wonders); ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black); Copics; grosgrain ribbon; sewing machine

A few things to keep in mind if you decide to use my sketch:
- You're kindly asked to save the image onto your computer first, and if you make a card based on it, please link back to this post.
- If you upload your card to an online gallery, please use the code SSC42.
- Please share the link to your creation via the Inlinkz widget, so that I can come and check it out. I would love to see what you did with it!
- The colours/elements mean nothing towards the card. All styles, colours and supplies, as well as slight alterations of the sketch are welcome.
- A new sketch and sample is posted every Saturday, but you're welcome to play any time! Just leave a link in the comments section after Inlinkz widget closes.
