I haven't been able to do my weekly participation in the SCS Sketch Challenge over the past month or so, but today when I saw the sketch came from Susan (Rainy) Roberts ... I just had to play!! This is THE CARD from which today's sketch is based. HERE is Susan's SCS Gallery and HERE is her blog.
For my card's background panels, I wanted to use the (retired) Stampin' Up Floral background stamp and needed to flip the sketch to do that and this is what I came up with. I used SU Eggplant Envy cardstock & ink. The gold edging was created using a Gold Pilot Marker. For my sentiment panel I used the SU Close As A Memory stamp set images, Perfect Plum & Versafine Black inks & Nestabilities. I used a white Gelly Roll pen to do the dots around the scallop edge of the matted panel. My sheer white ribbon was purchased (at a GREAT price) from a local wholesale house called Flower Factory (Canton, Ohio) and I used my recently purchased BOW EASY (from Sharon Johnson's blog shop) to make this beautiful, perfect bow. I am so pleased with the outcome of this card ... what a great layout!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Hope you had a great day today and an even better one tomorrow!!!
Here's what Mom & I quickly did before my dentist appointment & the rain this a.m. With this completed, we met up with a friend after my appt. and "did lunch". Fun day!!
