Holly B-day card

I wanted to draw a  birthday card for my daughter-in-law.   I had a drawing of her sewing vase which I liked.  But it was in my sketch book.  So I did a 2nd drawing and made it into at card.  However, I like the first drawing the best.  I found I can”t copy my own drawing very well.



The photo on the right is a picture I took of the vase.



The center pic is the first drawing I did of the vase.  I drew it directly, looking at the vase.  Then  I took the photo  to use for critiquing.  I like the shading much better on the original than on the drawing that I did for the card.
