Less is more - sketch

Hi ya, to keep with the theme this week I decided to do the new Less is more challenge for this week which is a sketch -
Yesterday while I was looking for some bits, I came upon some red gingham material and was totally inspired to do a crimbo card, so when I saw this sketch I was thrilled. 
I'm really impressed, my first crimbo card to give away, I also decorated the inside and the envelope with the stamp, materials I used below.  Thanks for sharing.

Colouring - Promarkers - leaves - marsh green, olive green, pear green (basically green lol) and poinsettia burgandy, poppy and red.

This is lovely. I like the way you put a really intricate topper and balanced it with the clear space.
