The days fly by so quickly, it is already Thursday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge! This week it is a sketch challenge. I didn't follow the sketch exactly but I think you can see the bones of the sketch in my card.
Here's what I made using this sketch.
I cut the band out of card stock Vellum using the So Detailed Thinlits. A lot of the band is hidden by the flower but I think you can see enough of it to see how pretty the design is.
I used the So in Love stamps to make my background design. I grouped 4 of the stamps from the set together on one block and randomly stamped using VersaMark ink.
I cut the flower next and even though there is Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper I decided to heat emboss the solid part of the flower using a mix of Dazzling Diamonds glitter and Clear Embossing powder. The two toned leaves were cut out of Pear Pizzaz card stock. I inked the solid part of the leaves with VersaMark so it would be a little darker and provide a little contrast. I used the Flourish Thinlits for the bud sprigs.
Be sure to check out the Create with Connie and Mary blog to see what the rest of the design team created for this sketch. It is always fun to see how everyone interprets the sketch.
