FMS#177




Hi everyone!!!


Nearly bedtime here, but I want to post my card for the current sketch challenge over at the Freshly Made Sketches Blog before I'm off to bed .
This is the sketch by Karren for the week:

 
 
and this is what my card looks like:
 
 
 

 
Used a piece of patterned paper from my stash.
Sentiment stamp and die from Verve.
Flourish die from MFT.
Some drywall tape, a doily and black plastic dots complete the card.


Thanks so much for popping in - always a pleasure to have you here!!!
Till next time!!!

You've reminded me that I still haven't picked up any drywall tape. Love the texture that it adds! How clever to weave the sentiment banner in and out of the large "U" die! Gorgeous card! Have a great day (or should I say night?). :-)

So beautiful Petra, as always! I love it. Such a creative take on the sketch! Loe that flourish and how the sentiment goes through the "U". Love the doily tucked in there too! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Love your take on this sketch. The use of the U as you've done it for the sentiment is such a fun look. Also love the split shape design and the drywall tape for texture. You've got feminine touches, texture, bolds & graphic elements... and this is a real stunner! TFS & Hugs.

So ongelooflik mooi Petra!
Ek dink dis regtig n kuns om al die verskillende elemente so mooi saam te kombineer.
'n Meesterstuk!

Love the tilted panel Petra. Gives an interesting touch to your pretty card. That big U is on my wish list for ages.... looks great with the greeting banner. The doily and the vine die-cut look amazing. :)

Vicki Dutcher said...

LOVE.it. :) The elements you used on this are just fun - that drywall tape is perfect with the scroll and doily~ another gorgeous card!

Geri said...

This beauty nearly escaped me...wonder why I never got this post?

So glad that I scrolled down because this is another stunner! Creativity lives in this card...the angled panel, the bold "U" and best of all - the way that you threaded the sentiment banner THROUGH the letter! Sweet, sweet card!

This is BRILLIANT, Petra! I adore the fabulous use of small spaces, meaning your mini canvases. They are amazing! I hope that makes sense, lol! HUGS! :) Mynn xx

Anita in France said...

Gorgeous, Petra ... the blend of graphic shapes in the DP and tape are a fabulous background to the delicate prettiness of the doily, flourish and sweet dots! Love how you threaded the banner through the 'u' ... brilliant! Bon dimanche! Anita :)

So clever!!! I love the way you separated the layers and added the drywall on the bottom! The banner going through the "U" is such a cool touch! LOVE LOVE LOVE!
