What Friends are For...

This week Anna-Carin has provided us with an awesome sketch.  I hope you will take the time to join us and play along.  Here is her sketch:

This sketch had me perplexed for a bit, but then a vision popped into my head as I spotted the retired Designer Red Ribbon.

Here is what I came up with:

I started with Sorbet Cardstock, and stamped in Sorbet Ink the little flower from the Words of Comfort Stamp Set (C1524) in a random pattern.  Using the same stamp set and ink, I choose the sentiment and stamped it on a piece of White Daisy Cardstock and matted it on a piece of Chocolate Cardstock.  Then I cut some flowers using the Art Philosophy Cartridge which matches the stamp from the Lucy Workshop Stamp Set.  I stamped the outline in Chocolate Ink, and then the solid image in Sorbet and added some highlight colours in Hollyhock, Cranberry and Ruby using the Alcohol Markers.

I hope you like my card, and take the time to hop over to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog to see what the design team has some up with.  Don't forget to leave some love, I enjoy reading your comments.

  3. I really like this card! I especially love the background stamping you did with the little flower stamp - it's the perfect detail touch! & of course the yellow / orange / brown fall color pallet is my favorite! This card just makes you feel happy!

  4. Ohhh I love it! Such a great card, I love how the flowers swoop around the sentiment. Great job with the colours too. I love everything about this card!
