Peace Wreath

G'day friends :)

I thought I'd play along in the TSG Sketch this week.  It's a neat one.  But I'm not 100% sure I'm in love with my result.  That happen to you too?  It looked better in my head that's for sure.

I like parts of it...but I think it has too much pattern even for me.  I think it takes away from the focal image, but I do love the paper.  Just probably not all together!  :)  The set is TSG's Season's Greetings, and the paper is MME Christmas.  

Here's the sketch. 

See cute right?  I think I should have stuck to more monochromatic in the panels however. 

Here's a closeup...

I added sparkle pen to some of the Christmas balls, and I like the scalloped line of black rhinestones along the bottom.  I also used a E08 copic to make the red ribbon a bit more rust looking to match the tone of the paper.  

Alright - let's just chalk this one up to:  very imperfect creatively but one more card for the Christmas Stash!
