2 Sketches 4 You Challenge - Laura's Sketch 56

I have been looking at challenge sites this week and came across 2 sketches 4 you and was instantly inspired by their card sketch below. I have been so focussed on scrapbooking lately it was nice to sit down and create this card.

I wanted to do something different but also elegant, as I will give this card to a friend for her birthday. I have had a pad of these Christina Re papers for a while and thought they would be perfect. I added the pearls to create the circle on the sketch rather than having my flowers on a paper one.

I grabbed a few tools I have not used in a while too. I paper pierced the burgandy strip of paper and scallop edged the printed paper. The flowers have all been cut out and the large one I have used several of the same flower to add layers and dimension.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend.
