Freshly Made Sketches #615

I'm getting a start on my Christmas cards for next year.  Today's is for Freshly Made Sketches.

I loved this PTI lantern when I first bought it but didn't use it at all this year.  Now that I've made this card I will definitely be doing others.  All inks are from Catherine Pooler with some PolyChromos pencils added for shading.  I haven't used my Liquid Pearls in forever and was surprised that they still worked beautifully for my berries and the center of the flower.  The background is a burlap embossing folder from Honey Bee. 

I'm so glad you dropped by.  Have a great weekend!
