Hello stamper friends!
It is a Sketch Challenge this week at Create with Connie and Mary. I had to think about what I wanted to do with this sketch.
I decided I wanted to use the 1-1/4" Two -Toned Ribbon behind my focal point. Love this ribbon! (it's in the Spring Catalog) It is so rich and classy looking.
The focal point is a combination of En Francais Background and Summer Silhouettes stamp set. To make the background I used Basic Gray ink but I stamped off first. That way it was light enough I could just stamp the leaves and stem directly on the card stock. I decided to cut out the flower and pop it up with a dimensional. But first I inked the flower with Pink Pirouette and added some Rose Red ink with a marker.
I rarely sew on cards. Not because I don't like to, I just never think to do that. For this card I sewed across the top of the stamped banner and then down the left side of the card base.
All supplies are Stampin' Up!
