 Hi and welcome!  Today's sketch hostess over at Freshly Made Sketches is Cecile Ribon and as always, she's given us a fun and unique sketch to play with.  Here's my card:

Originally I was going to do a colour-blocked card, but that evolved into this.  I found the Ampersand dies that I'd never used and through it would work for the centre element.  There is lots of gold embossing in this card and all the floral elements were ink-blended.

Thanks so much for visiting.  The design team have created gorgeous cards so I hope you'll check them out.

This is amazing! I love all of the deep blue elements with the splashes of color - plus the golden sentiment and dots. It's wonderful!

Lovely colors, lovely little flowers and thus, a lovely card! Besides that, the blue and gold foiled frame is just fabulous, so classy!
