Cotton Candy Clematis

Today is Freshly Made Sketch Challenge Day and that means another sketch for you to try!  This week, Cindy Lovell has given us a gorgeous sketch.  If you're not familiar with Cindy's work, you need to check out her blog - she has an amazing talent and style.





I think I'm actually missing a layer behind the circle but by the time I realised, my card was all stuck down and there was nothing I could do.  

I cut an open circle using Coastal Cabana cardstock, then I stamped several images from a new-to-me set from SSS called Summer Garden.  After coloring them with Copics, I cut them using the matching dies.  The sentiment is from another new set called Friendship Messages and was stamped in CTMH Cotton Candy ink as that was the closest match to my clematis (at least I think that's a clematis!)



Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out my talented team-mates and give this fun and trendy sketch a go yourself!
