With Sympathy......

G'day, How are you?  Well, I hope.  I have a card to share with you today.  I followed a sketch from AnnaBelle Stamps blog.  Andrea and her design team put up a fortnightly bling sketch challenge, it has a prize attached, (Yeah!).  This is their latest bling challenge sketch.   

Why not pop on over and checkout the team's wonderful work and join in the fun. That is after you have had a look at my creation.  Lol.  

I created the paper rose by following a Tim Holtz tutorial.  Now, while my rose is no where near as glittery and gorgeous as Tim's amazing creations, I love the way it is the centre piece of this card.

I wrapped the ribbon around the centre cardstock piece and tied a knot.  Then, I layered up the leaves and flowers on top of the knot.

This view shows the depth of this card.  I popped the sentiment up on some foam tape.
And here is the inside.  I used a corner punch on the Designer Paper and then on a piece of white cardstock.  I stamped up the white cardstock and inked all the edges.

I loved using this sketch, I have a couple of more cards to make up.  I might just try and use this sketch as well.  I hope you have enjoyed my creation.  I wish you all a lovely day.

Thanks for popping by and happy creating.
Cheers, Deb
