It is Thursday which means it is time for a new Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. This week it is a sketch challenge. The challenges generally alternate between a sketch and color challenge.
When I saw this sketch I thought it would be perfect one to use the Perfectly Penciled DSP from the 2022-23 Annual Catalog. I just purchased this pack of paper and it is surprising to me that I have resisted this pack of paper for so long.
I used both sides of this sheet of paper for the card. The rectangles were cut using the 3rd largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. The flowers were colored using Real Red and Old Olive Stampin' Blends. Lots of detail and shading on the paper making this an easy one to color. I used the Double Oval punch for the birthday sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set. This is my current favorite Real Red ribbon. This ribbon is part of the Real Red & Garden Green 3/8" Ribbon Combo pack. It ties beautifully and holds it shape.
I colored a strip of the Perfectly Penciled DSP and layered it with a strip of Basic Black CS to decorate the inside of the card.
Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created with this sketch,
