Here is the sketch
It is a lovely clean & simple design so I decided to make a card - well the front of it anyway. Now that I have finished it I have decided I am going to save it for next Christmas - here it is
I created the card in Serif craft Artist (a 5x5 square), & just used a couple of random embellishments & one piece of background paper from the many kits I have on my laptop. The layers are made by creating shapes & filling them with colour which I "picked" from the photo. The image is a Christmas decoration I made in the first year I lived here in North Wales - so 20 years ago this Christmas. It comes out every Christmas & is one of my favourite decorations. Believe it or not the base is a plaited black dustbin liner. Then all the greenery & bits & bobs are wired into it. The green ribbon is that papery florists ribbon & I actually stamped on it - a group of reindeer - the full length of the ribbon. The photo was another one from the 2010 attempt to take a photo a day.
I rather like it & I think I really will keep it & use it for my 2013 Christmas Card. That's forward planning isn't it. All I have to do is remember that that is my decision.
