Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge

This card is for Beate's Weekend Sketch challenge. I change the image to a circle instead of an oval. Then after I attached the flower, I realized I placed it in the wrong spot. Good thing Beate says that these sketch challenges are guidelines -- not rules.


I used the retired spring showers paper. I mounted each piece on a piece of so saffron, individually. If I do this over, (which I probably will), I will mount the DP on one piece of card stock -- not individually.

I stamped the flower 3 times, 1 for the cameo coral layer, 1 for the saffron layer, and 1 for the leaves. I watercolored each layer.

I like this layout, I think I will try again before Wednesday.

Stamps: Doodle This Ink: Old Olive, Cameo Coral, So Saffron, Timber Brown (Staz on) Paper: So Saffron, Whisper White, DP (retired) Extras: Dimensionals, Ribbon (spring mini), Paint brush

Very nice! You know I had to have that paper, bought it, and still have not used it?! I will have to dig it out and make some cards with it SOON. Right now my craft room looks like a bomb went off...I need to finish all the "almost complete" cards and put the materials away before creating another huge mess :) Love the ribbon you used too!!!
