Sketch Challenge "for you"

Another challenge card for today – the Sketch Challenge this time. You can find it here.

As simple as it is and even having the sketch to go by, this card took me a long time! I knew I wanted to use Stampin’ Up!’s Pocket Silhouettes – it was on my table waiting for me. I inked the stamp with Certainly Celery, removed the ink with a blender pen from the flowers and then re-colored the flowers with a Lavender Lace marker. The “for you” is from a Studio G set. I wanted to stamp the sentiment in black so it would show up better, so I added a little bit of black behind the image. I didn’t want the sentiment to be the only black on the card. I used an SU! Double Rectangle punch to thread the ribbon through. The background paper is from Die Cuts With a View – Nana’s Nursery – Boy. I cut the circles with the largest Circle Nestability, then cut the scallops out of the same paper. But I put the scallops at an angle to the circles. I wanted a little something more on the top, so out came my Dotted Swiss folder again! I used it on a separate piece of cardstock so that I could get it all the way to the edges. That’s about it!

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
