CAS-ual Fridays #37 and ColorQ #121

I had seen Julie Ebersole use this technique where she embossed the flower on kraft cardstock with white embossing powder then just color with markers.  I loved the look.  The last step is to take a Copic W1 and outline the flower to create a shadow.
I wanted to enter this in both challenges.  The fabric in the Color Q challenge is beautiful but I was a little worried that it might come off Christmasy.  Hopefully it didn't.  The sketch was a great one and will be used agin by me.

Cardstock: Stampin Up
Ink: Stampin Up
Stamps: Papertrey Ink
Extras: Button(?), Ribbon(Micheals)

Talk to you soon,
Sentimentally Sue
