DS #160



Hi there!!




Taking part in the sketch challenge over at the Deconstructing Jen Blog of Jen Shults.
I love Jen's sketches and to me this sketch was asking for a chalkboard.



This is the sketch:
 
 
and my card:

 
 
 






DP by Teresa Collins.  'Winter Rose' and 'Leaf-Filled Flourish' dies by MFT.  BG stamps by Glitz, arrow stamp by Verve.  I've used some vellum and white cs to do the flower and I've got  some vellum covering the white bg with the numbers and grid stamped on it.  Finished it off with black twine and rhinestones.
Afrikaans sentiment saying:  'Congratulations'.



Thanks for the visit!!

Keep well!!
Kind regards
Petra

Don't know how you do it. Another very elegant creation. The die cuts are the exclamation point for elegance. - Jim

Outstanding design with the way you've flipped that sketch. Really liked the look of the side triangle piece with the blackboard over it. Pretty colors with the B&W and adding in the beige accents. Loved the look of the coordinated background and of course your flowers, gorgeous - as always. TFS & Hugs
