Great sketch, Roxie! I decided to flip it horizontally and layered my pinecones on top of the circle. I SO loved the colors from yesterday's CC I had to use them again. Pinecones are inked in soft suede and then "thumped" with an espresso marker. Very sparkly in dd glitter. The cherry cobbler panel is stamped with the retired filigree bg stamp in cherry and sponged. The sentiment is a retired SU! rub-on...kind of a play on the stamp set used :) I'm unhappy with the bow...too big I think...I'll have to play with it since I think this is a very do-able card for multiple Christmas cards. TFL!!

I love it!!! Great Christmas card. Into my faves. Peaceful Wishes is still one of my favourite Christmas sets. :)

Love this! You're right about the color combination, it's gorgeous. Love your horizontal take on the sketch and the addition of the thumped pinecones. They pinecones are so appropriate, and a refreshing change from the expected flower. Actually, I like the scale of the bow, too.
