Get Sketchy 13 Flowers
I hope you are all off to a fabulous weekend so far. It is chilly fall day here in RI and I am busy crafting for my church bazaar. Here is my card for yesterday's "Get Sketchy 13" challenge. When I first saw the sketch, I thought there's no way I can do this, that's just too many squares and layers to try to figure out how to put on the front of a card. Still, I decided in the end that that's the point of a challenge, right? To try something outside your comfort zone. So, this is what I came up with. I started with a 5x 10 piece of Bermuda Bay which I folded in half. I then used different pattern pieces from my Prima Marketing Sasha Paper Collection. No, I didn't take measurements this time for you! Like I said, lots of squares and pieces. The other solid pieces are Melon Mambo and Dusty Durango which I ran through my cuttlebug to go along with the extra challenge for dry embossing. The flower in the center is from Recollections and I mounted that onto a piece of Bermuda Bay. I rounded the corners before adding it to the center with foam dimensionals. The sentiment is from SU's "Sweet Little Sentiments" which I stamped in Razzleberry ink. Finally I added the white gel pen faux stitching lines, which I know have been a staple for me lately; but I just really like the look of it!
So that's all for me today. I'll be back on Monday. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
