Create with Connie and Mary - CCMC229


2012 Create Thursday-009Hi Everyone,

Here is this weeks Sketch Challenge from Create with Connie and Mary which I've decided to play along with.

I've changed my card up a little from the sketch you see.  Instead of the flower on the sketch being the focal point, I've used a Bow and Vintage Brad. 

I've used the Stamp Set Forever Young on my card stamped with Stazon Ink and I've brayered the background with Baja Breeze and Pear Pizzazz inks.  The patterned paper on my card is from the Festival of Prints stack and my cardstock is Basic Black, Whisper White, Very Vanilla and Pool Party, with some Pool Party Seam Binding.  The greeting is from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set.



Here is a closer look at the double bow

I hope you've enjoyed stopping by.  Please leave me a comment as I really enjoy reading them and appreciate your time taken to leave it.

  5. Thanks Ladies, for your lovely comments. I really wanted to use this stamp set as I haven't in a while. Brayering the background is my favourite way to use that stamp.
