Freshly Made Sketches.......thanks


Happy Saturday Peeps!!

Today I asharing a card I made using the sketch this week



I thought the pretty flower in the stampin Up Hostess set called Gifts of Love would be perfect for the upright element on this sketch.

I stamped it a couple of times onto some Thick Whisper White card stock and colored using my Aqua painter and ink pads, I used Melon Mambo and Mint Mararon.

I fussy cut it out and added it to my card front piece with some dimensionals.



The bottom strip is made up of a piece of DSP and a piece of silver Glimmer paper.

The "thanks" is a non SU die that I purchased online a few weeks back. I really love the size of this die cut, it is perfect for cards.
I did add a bit of a paper doily behind the strips mostly to cover up a smear, but I like how it looks too. :)
I finished up with a few sequins.
This piece is added to my card base with dimesionals too.

Thanks for stopping by today!

This is so pretty with the bold sentiment and soft flowers! And I have been known to add an embellishment or two over a smudge myself! Glad you joined us at FMS!
