This week over at Sweet Stampin our challenge is A Sketch/In the Garden theme, chosen by the talented Val.
Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Heather Ellis, and the card I have made is using one of her cute images, hope you like it!
I bought this flower background paper recently in The Range, its by g.c.d and is called "The Lydia Collection". The flowers are from my stash, the ribbon is from my local market stall, the pearls are hobbyhouse, and a craftwork cards sentiment. The Image is coloured with Pro-Markers.
As I love this sketch and the theme of "In the Garden", I have made another card using this theme and this time I have used this lovely tree stamp called "Open Tree" by Hobby Art. I stamped the image in Memento Brown Ink and inked around the image to distress it a bit, I have added some Platinum stickle, and quite a few Hobbyhouse pearls in silver/blue. The flowers are American Crafts and I have added a "Springtime" sentiment, but not sure what make this is. The grass punch is a MS, and I think the papers are Dovecraft.
I have used this tree lots of times, it's great for a man's card, I have also used it for Christmas, for Birthdays and for notelets, I just love it.
