More Christmas!

Hello and happy Thursday! Thanks to all Veteran's who served our country well. It is appreciated and you deserve this day of honor and more! Thank you! For my card today I used I Brake for Stamps Large Flower Background.
I decided it could make a card all by itself! At only 5.00 it's a real deal! You can use my code SAVE10CHERYL to get 10% off any order there!
I think I can be colored for any season or occasion. A sentiment would also look good in the corner, I think. It is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored with copics.
Even small things can (and should) have highlights. It just take a little careful coloring and at least two shades of markers, sometimes three for more contrast.
I used R22, R29 and R59 for the flowers, a yellow and an orange for the centers and YG01, YG17 and YG99 for the leaves. Leave quite a bit very light and then color small portions with the darker color. Then blend a bit with the lighter color. As I'm sure many of you know, the blender is difficult to work with in small areas! I used T1 and T3 to add depth around the flowers.
Well, that's it for me today! I've got to finish (start!) my JUGS card for Saturday! Oh, and some housecleaning!
Have a wonderful day! Take care, Cheryl

Chrissy D sent me over to take a look at your card. I am glad she did as it is a simple but so elegant card. The background with the added embellishment is just the perfect touch. I really love it.
