I don't use sketches very often for my cards but I tried one a couple of weeks ago and it turned out lovely so I thought I would try another. The sketches at Sketches in Thyme always seem quite lovely so I started in on this week's challenge.
The first card (the one that follows last week's sketch) uses more of that stunning Graphic 45 paper, Fashonista.
vintage flower brads from Creative Charms. I then stamped the sentiment using Versamark and black embossing powder. I don't have a circle punch large enough for the stamp so I used my Expression to cut it out. Believe it or not I was able to cut the circle without using Design Studio. I used the center point feature by pointing the blade in the middle of the stamped image.
But that isn't all I have for now. Here is the card for this week's challenge.
Anna Griffin's Flora Collection. I bought this on clearance at Hobby Lobby a couple of months ago. I don't know if it is still in stores or not. When I went searching for a link, I found out it was released in 2009. I love this stack, and I'm not normally a huge fan of Anna Griffin but the colors in the stack are very rich and wonderful. I love the browns and she also has some papers with brown and a deep red. It is incredible. All of the paper is double-sided so I used the front for the rosette and the flower inset. I used the back for the top half of the card.
Once again, I pulled out my Creative Charms embellishments and used some chocolate brown velvet ric-rac and a velvet poppy. I switched out the pearl brad in the center of the flower and replaced it with the vintage amber brad. If you click on each of the items, you can go directly to the page where Creative Charms sells each item.
I hope you enjoyed both of my cards for today. I'll be back with one more, a monochromatic card.
