Crafting Cafe DT Challenge Card-Sketch

Hello and welcome friends! My name is Amy and I'm so thrilled to be posting my first Design Team card with The Crafting Cafe. I live in New England, Massachusetts specifically over here in the US. This month at The Crafting Cafe we've been working with sketches that Nikki has created. I chose sketch #3-see sketches below.

Even though it's already past Christmas I still have the Holiday spirit and wanted to create my last Christmas card.For this card i wanted to keep the stamp image simple so that it can shine. I felt just adding some color to his face and hos hat worked best. I did add some Glossy Accents to his glasses so when you touch that area it is smooth.

This is a close up of the paper flowers I cut using a SCAL file from Merry & Bright. I added some stamen centers from my cake decorating stash. i thought they gave the card a bit more texture.
