Here is this week's Sketch and my creation using one of the newest images “Door Wreath” by Priscillastyles:

I printed the image twice, and coloured using Copics. The potplant, door wreath door mat and door latch were cut out from the second coloured image and popped up on the first image using foam squares trimmed to size. Some sparkly beads, hand made paper for a Christmas tree and a length of some strange looking stuff (who knows what it is?) complete the card.

Don't you just love the image?
