A tough sketch


I have to admit that I was quite intimidated by this week's Sketch Challenge! I almost didn't even attempt a try at it! But fortunately, once I sat down I glanced across my desk and saw some Brocade Blue cardstock that I've had out for a while, so I thought, ok, I'll use that. Then everything slowly started coming to me and here's the end result! I just *love* when a card comes together that quick, which has not been the case for me in a long time. I used ink from my Brocade ink pad and a watercolor brush for the leaves. I used Green Galore and Celery for the leaves. I decided to mix it up and use buttons and brads for the flower centers. There's some sponging around the sentiment layer as well as piercing, plus I stamped the Baroque swirl on it with Brocade after stamping off once first. And that's it! I'm so happy with how it turned out. Well, I hope you like it!!! hugs ~

I saw this sketch earlier this week and definately got scared off by it too! How does one get a funky oval shape?
I love the brocade blue and the flowers - the brads and buttons are way cute!

You know I wasn't crazy about this sketch before so I usually bypass the cards. Your card however, WOW! I want to try this! You did an awesome job on it!

p.s. my brother is an AF recruiter too in Asheboro NC - fun job!! He's been at it 4 years and is on the move again soon too! Tell your hubby "good luck"! Tough trade to be in these days!
