Christmas Pudding anyone?

OK, so for CAS Colours and Sketches I've gone all Christmassy this week. Any card can be entered into the challenge, as long as it's CAS and, this week, takes it's inspiration from this sketch

and this week this is what I've come up with
The centre is a 'faux tile' or embedded image. I die cut a circle from mountboard, stamped and coloured the Christmas pudding image, sponging with distress inks and then added several layers of UTEE.  I then matted this onto red cs and added a glittery edge.  The paper is more from Summer Smooches (shows how versatile it can be!) and I chose kraft as my base.

I stamped this sentiment from Whacky Wishes in the inside of my card in Poppy Parade. The other ladies in the DT have also made fabulous cards for you to check out if you're not keen on a Christmas theme-may be it's too early for you!
