Thank You For Your Friendship

Hi, Friends.....

This is my second post of the day!!!  Wow.  I must be feeling better, huh?  :)   This card was made following the July sketch challenge at Quick Quotes.  It is obviously more of a layout sketch, but I rose to the occasion to try my hand at making a card with it.  Besides, it looked like a good way to use a bunch of my scraps.  Lots of layers means lots of scraps.  Oh, yes!!! 

Here's my take.......

The lovely sentiment with the gorgeous font is from Inky Antics - Script Sentiments #1.  I had been admiring this on my craft table for quite awhile and finally decided to stamp a whole bunch of the sentiments for future use.  When I saw this sketch, I knew one of them would be perfect.  This one is stamped with Olympia Green Versafine Ink

Other supplies used include:
Prima flowers of various sorts
Distress Ink in Forest Moss and Antique Linen
Zva Swirl for sparkle  :)
Want 2 Scrap - Adhesive Pearls

I really love the serene colors of this card with the touch of bling that the swirl provides.  The sketch was a challenge to turn into a card, but I enjoyed the process.  Hope you like it, too!!

  2. Beautiful card. I like how you turned a scrapbook sketch into a card.

  3. What a clever way to use that layout sketch and what a glorious result! I just love the serene green tones and lovely distressed look of the paper and favorite technique. Those flowers are perfectly placed and the blingy swirl is a wonderful accent. Makes me think of morning dew drops on flower petals!
