...and here is my take on that sketch:
I stuck pretty much to the original sketch. I used the stack of presents image from Sherrod Studio's Ella stamp set. The image is stamped onto GP110 white cardstock and colored using Copic Markers. I then layered it onto Real Red and then Basic Black cardstock. The card base is Basic Black with a layer of Christmas Cocoa DSP. The circle is the reverse side of the DSP layer. The ribbon is 1/4" white grosgrain from SU. The "Merry Christmas" is from Sherrod Studio's Christmas Greetings set. The large black brads are Recollections, the small red brads are from Making Memories. The flower is Prima.
