Floral Silhouette

Hi and welcome!  Today's sketch from the team at Freshly Made Sketches is brought to us by Cecile Ribon and she's given us a wonderful and unique sketch.
I stayed pretty true to the sketch and came up with this card.

The flags were die-cut from cardstock to give an ombre look and I used tape to tape all three together before stamping the sentiment over the top.  The flowers were white embossed onto black and then die-cut with the matching dies.  I arranged three of the sprigs and adhered them together before adding them to the card base.

And that's it!  Thanks for visiting and I hope you'll head over to the challenge blog and check out the gorgeous cards made by the design team.

I love the ombre effect you've created. And the white embossing on black card stock adds a cool dramatic effect. Pretty card, Karren!

I totally love your CAS take on the sketch, Karren! The white on black embossed flowers are so striking. The 3 shade of bleu flag banner makes the perfect background for them.
