As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to use Graceful Garden. The roses match the sketch and gave me another chance to play around with colouring. The colours I’ve used for my roses are Highland Heather and Elegant Eggplant Inks. The leaves and stem are coloured with Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive Inks.
The base of my card is stamped with the background stamp from Graceful Garden in Black Stazon Ink. I layered a strip of Basic Black Cardstock and a strip of spotted DSP from Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper. I then took two pieces of Basic Black Bakers Twine and placed them across my card. I tied a bow with some offcut twine and adhered it to my card with a Glue Dot. The sentiment I’ve used on my card is also from Graceful Garden – don’t you just love the font in this sentiment?
The team at Freshly Made Sketches have gorgeous cards with this weeks sketch. Head over to the challenge and see what they’ve created. While you’re there, we would love it if you could link up a card.
Thanks for stopping by.
