I was slightly shocked and amazed when I discovered that the sketch this week at retro sketches was based on a card that I made. I mean, really, how cool is that? Here's the sketch:
I pretty much followed the sketch except that I changed the placement of the sentiment and decided to add something a bit more interesting that I didn't have on my original card - a popped up flower. The floral images are from the brand new Secret Garden stamp set. I stamped a few flowers around the bordered sentiment and one flower on a separate piece of cardstock so that I could use the companion die to cut it out. I added that flower on a dimenstional with a large rhinestone and I've got to say it looks a lot better in person than it looks here!
I had been looking for a good excuse to join the "Blue" challenge at CASology this week and this sketch seemed to fit the bill perfectly, so if you were wondering why this card is all in blue and white, wonder no more!
Thanks so much for stopping by. And don't forget to pop on over to retro sketches to check out the design team cards. They are fantastic, as usual!
