Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Here we are at sketch 202 already. Can you believe it?

We have a simple sketch for you this week and we hope you will play along.  Here is the sketch….

ssc202 

…and my very simple interpretation.

Sketch 202 002

The card base is white (oh what a surprise)  and is cut at 4 1/4 x 11. Followed by an old olive mat cut to 4 x 5 1/2 and punched with the scallop edge punch. On that I added a piece of Presto Patterns DSP that was sponged with Old Olive. The flowers were stamped with Black Stazon on white cardstock and cut out. I used the new Fabulous Florets Set and just love the images in it.  I cut them out and popped them up over and array of slivered snips of cardstock that I cut using my paper snips.

I colored the flowers using my Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pen. I then added a bit of green to the center and on the big flower added a rhinestone.

I used the fabulous white satin ribbon to make my double bow.

So there you have it. My simple and easy card for today’s challenge.

I hope you will take a little time this weekend to play along. We’d love for you to share with us.
