Weekend Sketch

Posted in Weekend Sketch at 3:18 pm by happygiggles

So, Beate of Fresh & Fun comes up with these amazing sketches every Friday for anyone who wants to play along.  I decided to give it a go this time around!  I loved the sketch.  I think I’ve played along once before, not too sure.  Here’s this week’s sketch:


And here’s my card!

I’m quite pleased with how it turned out!  All my inspiration came from the designer paper that I used for the four rectangles.  This particular sheet of paper has been calling my name for some time now!  I layered some chocolate Bazzill Bling on top of some light pink Bazzill Bling to create the initial card.  Next came the patterned paper, then a bit more chocolate, then some whisper white.  I stamped this branch with certainly celery ink.  The flower was made using a stamp from a Beautiful Thing, Versamark, then some silver pearl embossing powder.  For the final touch I added a little crystal rhinestone for some bling!  I hope you like it!


Stamps:  Best Blossom, A Beautiful Thing
Paper:  chocolate Bazzill Bling, light pink Bazzill bling, whisper white, paper from a Costco slab
Ink:  certainly celery, Versamark
Accesories, crystal rhinestone, silver pearl embossing powder
