The power of flowers

There’s a sketch for your inspiration at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges this week.Please take a look at the challenge blog for details on how to play along and be in the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop.Don’t forget to check out the beautiful DT work while you’re there.

Here’s Karen’s fab sketch :

I’ve made  a different card to the style I normally make using of the free Word Art sentiments from the Blossom set available at Digi Doodle Shop.It’s been printed onto pearlescent pink card.I’ve used layers of this plus some white pearlescent card.The papers I found in a Summer sale at my local craft warehouse.The top piece is a white flocked vellum and the bottom one is a double sided paper.I’ve used various die cut shapes along with a Martha Stewart punch.I finished it with some grossgrain ribbon and some little pearl flowers that I rediscovered whilst rummaging through my stash.I thought the sentiment compilmented the wording on the flower.If you can’t quite make it out click through for a bigger pic.Sorry there seems to be a bit of glare of the card from my daylight lamp.
