Yay!!! It's Thursday and time to share my card for Sketches! this week :) Tamara has provided us with yet another wonderful sketch and i just couldn't wait to use some of the new Basic Grey 'Porcelain' papers on this design!
My card base is 5 x 7 and onto this i've added a piece of 'Silver Birch' for my background. I then cut two 1.75" strips of 'Bellamy' which i scored and pleated and ran these through my sewing machine before sticking to my card......... my stitching is getting straighter everytime! i think i could get to enjoy this, and i do love the effect it gives :)
Onto the flower!.......the gorgeous large green one is from a Prima Minnie Can 'Odyssey'.... i've had these for ages, i still have lots left in all different colours.....i like to use them sparingly!! :)
I punched another from the 'Silver Birch' paper using a Paper Shapers Daisy whale of a punch, i topped this with a Papermania fabric flower.......now the gold thing in the centre was given to me by my eldest daughter Chloe....mmmm not sure what it is!! i think it may have been part of a necklace that fell to pieces! she knew that i would use it somehow :) The tiniest flower is a HOTP metal pinwheel with a brad through the centre and the wording is Adornit etched natural stickers.
Why not join in the fun this week? i would love to see your take on this fab sketch........ thanks for popping in today.....see you soon ;-D
