For you Gypsy Card for Sketch #14 AHSC

Good morning, or at least I hope it will be a good morning.  It's 7am here on the Atlantic Coast, and the past few days the weather has been less than summery. (Is summery a word?)  I made this card for my bff since she thinks I don't make any cards using purple....hehe!

Here is the sketch for this week:
I should explain that I sketch out a card and it is hen scratching at best with details wrote across the sketches, and Darla does her best to interpret my sometimes she can't get my little details in the same way, so she chooses the best options.  So this is my card, from my sketch.

The card base is White Daisy which has a piece of Gypsy CS that was run through my cuttlebug using the True Love all-in-one folder.  I then inked up the embossed section(which is raised, so it is the only part that takes the ink).  The floral area is stamped on White Daisy using the Floral Happiness SOTM set in 1st and 2nd generation stamping.  This stamp set has a base and detail stamp that coordinate together.  This is 3D popped ontop of a White Daisy mat.  The Sentiment is from the From Me to You stamp set(retired) in Black Ink and again in Gypsy Pigment Ink.  The accessories used are silver coloured Opaques from the Licorice collection.

I hope you take the time to visit our Sketch Challenge, today our design teams creations are posted as well as the Top 3 from last week.  If you haven't had the chance to enter yet, what is stopping you, grab our sketch and play along.  Remember that every Monday morning, a new sketch is posted.  


  1. Beautiful card!! I LOVE purple! Inking the raised part of your background is something I forget to do.

  2. One of these times I'm going to post a picture of the hen scratch you give me for a sketch. LOL Seriously though I love it!! I love that I now have enough sketches to do a card a week for the next 5 years easily and that quite a few of them are sketched with my style in mind even. Truly a BFF. Now if I could just add some more techy stuff to the blog that you "need" me for I'd be all set. LOL

  3. So pretty; I was not a huge fan of that stamp set but I really do love what you did with this.


I enjoy hearing from you, and love to get blog love for my creations. Thank you for visiting my blog.
