My Paper World Sketch Challenge #7


Nicola has a new sketch challenge for this fortnight. I was going to also submit it for Fiona's Alphabet challenge but that site has unfortunately been taken down (please note this, Lee). I needed a birthday card for a girlfriend also, so this card really has a number of uses!
I used Stampin' Up! cardstock - Old Olive and Whisper White. I used black Stazon ink, Always Artichoke and Versamark and embossed the flowers with gold. The flowers are coloured with Stampin' Pastels. That's a prima flower and a gold brad from my stash. The flowered paper is from the Be Yourself Collection by Urban Lily. I hand wrote the sentiment and doodled around the flowered background.
