Sugar Nellie Christmas Honey

I made this card for the Sugar Bowl Sketch Challenge #17. I think this is a fabulous sketch but not only do you have to follow the sketch, you have to make your own flowers, no premades allowed.

I began with this adorable Sugar Nellie Christmas Honey, stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Cryogen white paper. Copics used:
Dress & Bows - R29, R59
Holly - YG67
Berries - R21
Hair - E13, E19
Face - E000, E00, E02
Bear - E33, R21
Bell - YR23, YR24

I added some Spica pen to the berries and the bell for some added bling. Then I airbrushed YR20 around the edge before removing it from my Nestie oval die. Using 2 Marvy daisy punches and 2 EK retro punches I created the flowers. I dry embossed them from the back to give them a rounded look. The branch is a Martha Stewart punch.
