I've had some time to play this weekend and have made a couple of cards for challenges.  This is the second one I made.

This was made using the colors at Color Throwdown and the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch.

I started with a card base of Tip Top Taupe which is a really nice neutral.  On top of that I layered on foam tape a sheet of white cut with a pierced die.  Out of that I'd cut a curvy panel using Blueprints 25.

I then adhered a Sea Glass pierced circle die and a flower that I'd colored with Copics.  The sentiment was die-cut from a piece of X-Press It I'd colored with the same peachy Copic markers, but this time in an ombre fashion. That was adhered to the white panel at the top and bottom and some teeny tiny bits of foam tape through the center.

The rest of the sentiment was stamped and my card was finished.

Thanks for visiting.

Products used:

Stamps:  Sending and Wishing (SSS), Fresh Flowers (Clearly Besotted)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  Tip Top Taupe (SU), white, Sea Glass (SSS), X-Press It
Accessories:  Copics, Sending die (SSS), Pierced Circle Stax (MFT), Blueprints 25 (MFT), Blueprints 21 (MFT)
