Spring Bouquet

Hi and welcome!  I'm back with a card for the latest challenge at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our hostess is camp mum Jennifer Timko.  And here is her wonderful sketch:


I had a floral image I'd colored up earlier in the month for the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge and I was determined to make it into a card with this sketch.  I had to flip the sketch to make it work, so I hope Jennifer doesn't mind!


The image was colored with both Copics and Prismacolor pencils and then I went around the outside with pale blue Copic markers.  I fussy-cut part of the image and die-cut the rest with a stitched rectangle die. The sentiment comes from the fabulous Essential Sentiments set by MFT.



 Onto the Fog card base, I added some black and white striped paper then popped up the image layer with foam tape.  I finished by adding clear sparkle pen to all the flowers.  


Thanks for visiting!  If you haven't already, I encourage you to head on over and check out the gorgeous cards made by the DT.   I'm going to link this card up to Seize the Birthday's Anything Goes Challenge.

WOW! I love how you fussy cut the one edge of the flowers and allowed them to overlap the striped layer. What a great look!

Great coloring on the flower bouquet. Like the stitching and the black striped designer paper, all of this combined makes one fab card! Thanks again for having me guest design for the month of June. I enjoyed my time with all of you lovely and talented ladies!
