Plank Bouquet

Hi and welcome to another year of challenges from the team at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our first sketch was designed by Judy Rozema.

I white-embossed the Plank background stamp onto both a white panel and a panel of Bristol Smooth and die-cut them both with a stitched rectangle die.  Onto the Bristol Smooth piece, I ink-blended various green distress inks then lightly spritzed with Perfect Pearls mist.

The flowers were stamped with Altenew inks and cut with my Scan n Cut.  I die-cut the sentiment die and arranged all the elements onto a white card base, before finishing with some enamel dots.

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you'll check out the gorgeous cards made by the rest of the design team.
