Thinking Of You

Challenges

Sketch Saturday (64) - Sketch

Roses On Paper (18) - Colours Of Fall (Orange/Brown/Warm Red)

Daring Cardmakers - Lace

These are not colours I would normally think to put together but suprisingly I think they work quite well.

I covered the base card with spotty paper and then embossed the orange card using the cuttlebug and added a punched lace border. On top I added a strip of brown card with a red ribbon along it. After attaching with D/S tape I stamped the sentiment, inked the edges and layered it before attaching with foam pads. Next came the image which I stamped, coloured with MLP pens, inked the edges and layered using nesties and again attaching with foam pads. Finally, I stamped and coloured the flowers. I then cut the petals and used a ball tool to emboss the front and back of each flower to give it shape before attaching with foam pads. Hope you like it.
