Pretty Bouquet

Hi and welcome to challenge day at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our hostess is the fabulous Rita Wright and she has a wonderful sketch for us.


And here's my card inspired by the sketch and by Donna's gorgeous tag at Tag You're It:


I spritzed some Heidi Swapp color spray onto a die-cut tag and set it aside to dry.  Then I stamped some images from Peony Bouquet.  Some dotted washi tape was wrapped around the tag and I then arranged my flowers to the left as in the sketch.  I wanted a thin and long sentiment and found the perfect one in a PTI KIS set.  Lastly I tied a bow from some black twine.


Thanks for visiting.  The rest of the design team have some wonderful cards so be sure to check them out.

Stamps:  Peony Bouquet (Altenew), KIS Just Because (PTI)
Ink: Moon Rock, Velvet, Rouge, Blush, Forest Glades, Frayed Leaf (Altenew), Versamark

Karren

I actually have some of that spritzy-spray but forgot all about it! What a wonderful way to add some subtle color to a background. I love how it makes the tag show up on the white background and really shows off the colorful flowers!
