Basic Grey 9 and Sketch Saturday 23

This was a fairly quickie make - surprising because the sketch look as if it would be much more complicated than it actually is. I will certainly be using this sketch again.

This card is for the Basic Grey challenge number 9 for a Christmas card. I haven't got the figgy pudding paper, but I think this Basic Grey Eva paper looks effective on a Christmas card.

I've also used the fab sketch by Coco for the Sketch Saturday challenge number 23. You must try this sketch out as it is great fun to work with.

Items used:
Basic Grey Eva 6x6 pad
Gold embossed card
Black card
Kanban Christmas topper and sentiment.
Prima glittered flowers
Dovecraft brads
Ribbons from stash.
