Crafty Ann's Challenge #22 - Sketch Challenge

Had a ball making this 8 x 8 card from the sketch over at Crafty Ann's. As a rule, I do not like sketches and find my mind goes blank when I have to conform to someone else's design but this one went so smoothly.
For the backing papers I used Polished Stone pastel lemon and Mottled Stone autumn red and the flowers are the red 3D Long Petalled Flower Collection - all from Crafty Ann's. The Oyster Stamp vase is stamped over a scrap of patterned paper from I know not where, a few foliage sprays from paper punches and three pearls complete the card. The corners are decorated with a Martha Stewart punch and the sentiment was a free gift from a magazine.

I hope you will join us over at Crafty Ann's Challenge blog and don't be put off taking part because it is a sketch - just lay out all your pieces and you will see it comes together so easily. Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment - all are appreciated.

  5. So beautiful, Janet. I love the texture and 3-D look of the flowers. I bet this is so stunning to see in person and to touch.
