FMS#269

Hi everyone!!!!


Nearly one o'clock in the morning, but before I'm off to bed I want to share a card I've made for the current sketch up at the Freshly Made Sketches Blog!!!!!!  This is the lovely sketch by Linda:

 

I've flipped the sketch on it's side and made a landscape card.
 


I absolutely LOVE these flowers from CAS-UAL FRIDAYS Stamps!!!!  Coloured it with my GraphIt pens.
The flowers that aren't coloured were stamped on the card front using grey ink.  The smaller, coloured flowers were stamped in black, die cut and adhered to the card front.  The bigger flower is on foam tape, as is the sentiment strip. 
Piece of silver mirror card and a blue glitter paper strip at the bottom.
Some rhinestones to add sparkle.


I can hear my bed calling loud and clear!!!!!


So lovely having you here - thanks for the visit - hope to see you again, soon!!!!

Gorgeous card Petra ... and wonderful take on the sketch. Love the shine from your foil strip. And the flowers are awesome. So much dimension from layering them on top of your base. Unique design with some flowers coloured and some left white ... so very creative!! xx

Besutiful! I love the coloring

Pat said...

These flowers are beautiful Petra and I love the way you have combined the outline ones with some coloured die cut ones and then popped one up for added impact, and then the shiny and glittery strips with the white on black sentiment on top. Definitely a winning design in my book. x

You are so right...these flowers are gorgeous! I got so excited to see your comment on my blog this morning!! I thought of you different times over the holidays and just didn't get to your blog until now! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a blessed new year!! ((hugs)) P.S. I also thought of you when I ran into an ex-sister-in-law and she told of her wonderful trip to South Africa! She loved visiting the country! It's on my bucket list! :-)

And of course, I am again blown away by your simple and creative style.. I would never in a million years think to be so creative with such a simple stamp. So so happy you are back Petra.. take care and see you soon.... :) BTW did you ever receive my thank you card?

So nice to see you card making, blogging and commenting again! I've missed you. Your latest work is absolutely stunning. I am particularly in love with this card. Such a great idea to turn the sketch on it's side, and your coloring is beautiful.

Happy Dance said...

Very lovely, Petra. There's a beautiful sense of calm in this card. Not exactly soft, but just so very soothing to see. Your coloring of those blooms is delightful, and those blues are rich and deep. I think you've nailed the sketch, and this card is just fabulous. Have a great week. : ) Bev

I love your use of those beautiful flowers. It's a lovely arrangement for the open space on the sketch. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

Morning Petra. Great card. Welcome back. So nice to see you being sharing again Glenda

Geri said...

Hey there stranger! I'm finally out and about in blogland again and was thrilled to see your post pop up in my mailbox!

Hope you had a fabulous holiday season and best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous new year!

GORGEOUS! GORGEOUS! GORGEOUS CARD! Your design is AWESOME! Flipping the images and leaving some flowers un-colored it so cool! PERFECT bits of bling too and a really cool sentiment banner design!

Hopefully my blog visits stay on track now!

Marybeth said...

Hi Petra, so fun to hear from you again sweet friend! This stamp you used is new to me and you have wowed me big time with this gorgeous card! I sure hope life has been treating you well! Stunning card and bloom!

MaryH said...

Happy New Year, Petra. So lovely to have a visit from you, and I zipped over to enjoy this beautiful card. I really like the floral images. It reminds me of the Dutch Folk Art that used to be done on some of the Pennsylvania furniture from years ago. I like the way you've left some of the image uncolored, very stylistic, and I also admire the way you've made the sketch quite your own design. It's a gorgeous card, very classy.

I hope you & your family had a wonderful holiday season. I know you get busy with many other crafts, so it's nice to be back in touch with you. I don't have such good excuses, just not keeping up as well as should be. Thanks for your comment on the cardinal in the snow. Had I your awesome photography skills, I would have been able to capture the red fellas that would sit on the feeder. Alas, best I could do, was the little red one fluffing his feathers in the bush! TFS & Hugs.

Those flowers are my favorite CASual Fridays image ever! And you've used them to create a beautiful card, Petra.
