So, since it's Saturday, that means it's high time for another Just Us Girls challenge (JUGS49). My dear friend, Alicia is hosting with a fun sketch challenge! Check it out:
Here's my take on the sketch:
The patterned paper comes from one of the new packs I designed for this month's release at My Time Made Easy. I used three of the four sheets in the Diamonds and Pearls collection. I had a wedding theme in mind when I created it, but it worked nicely with my Thinking of You sentiment today. Oh and how beautiful is that ribbon I paired with the paper?! I picked it up yesterday at AC Moore...I couldn't resist :]
Okay, so for my card I created my bloom from the MTME Rambling Rose cut file. I followed Lauren's tutorial on the rose, and sponged the edges with distress ink.I adhered my layers with glue dots and added a flat backed pearl to the center. I stamped the flourish on the So Sentimental Frame cut file and used gold embossing powder to really make it shimmer on my striped paper.
It's hard to see, but I stamped a small flourish on my vellum All Tied Up - Oval tag with shimmery white pigment ink before I stamped my sentiment and embossed it in gold. I think it just adds to the elegant look ♥ I printed the floral pattern on some beige cardstock I picked up at Staples. It resembles faux parchment paper and absorbs ink beautifully! I cut the strip of floral paper using the MTME Border Builders Elegance cut file. My flourish and main layers have Soft Suede as a base layer...and I think the rest is self explanatory ;]
