FMS#187




Hi everyone!!!


Have you seen the great sketch by Cindy over at the Freshly made Sketches Blog??  I just had to put the knitting aside for a while to make a card!!!!  The sketch:


and my card:

 



The butterfly stamp is from KaiserCraft.  Coloured it with coloured pencils.
Leaves stamp and die from PTI.   Sentiment banner dies from Verve.
Done sort of a bokeh effect on the black using my Platinum Planet ink pad by Dew Drop.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.


Have to be off to prepare supper!!!

Thanks for popping in - always a pleasure to have you here!!!

Have a great day!!

This is a fabulous card. I found this sketch challenging, but I have not given up yet. I like how your frames are open in the center and your free form black twine is such a nice touch. Thanks so much for the sweet comments you have been leaving on my blog.

Oh my...I love the 'smokey' colors that you have used! Deep, rich color that creates a dynamic contrast with the glorious white space! LOVE the colors on the butterfly & awesome bokeh effect!
