Hi! Happy you stopped by. It is Thursday which means it is time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. We are back to our rotation between sketch and color challenges. This week it is a sketch challenge.
I had to pull out my Prized Peony bundle. Can you believe I haven't used it in 2 weeks! I know, it is kind of shocking. Before I forget here is the sketch.
The card base is Basic Black and I used 2 patterns from the Peony Garden DSP. Love that paper for both the beautiful peony images and the more subtle designs. I think I have done this before but I love the peony against the Basic Black circle. I usually use Whisper White but the Basic Black is very dramatic and I think it really highlights the peony.
To color the peony I used Petal Pink and Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends for the flower and Old Olive for the leaves. Did you notice the 2 gems? They are the Petal Pink gems from the Elegant Faceted Gems.
The sentiment is from the Ornate Thanks stamp set. Love the font in this set and it has a lot of great sentiments. Below the sentiment I added a small strip of Black Glitter paper (Aug-Dec mini catalog). Love the little bit of sparkle.
Thank you stopping by and hope to see you again tomorrow,
