Playing Cards! TCC and FMS

Two of my favorite challenges seemed to play really well together in my craft room today!  This photo from The Card Concept's challenge 81 provided the inspiration:


Cecile's Sketch #312 at Freshly Made Sketches gave me a beautiful platform for it!


Using a personal rendition of Cecile's Sketch, and inspired by the gorgeous little personal pots of Poinsettia, here's my 'Classic Layered' card:


Thanks for letting me invade your space twice today!  xx

E.H. Mondo Poinsettia; Lil' Inkers wood grain background die; Stamplorations Bees Knees sentiment from the Layered Holly set; Distress Oxides for water coloring.

What is that gold cardstock you've been using on your cards lately, Michele? It works beautifully with everything you've done, including these gorgeous mondo poinsettia.
