Smelling Like a Rose

This card is BEAUTIFUL if I do say so myself! ;-) I got the sketch online somewhere (I just searched on 'card sketches' and then when I found one I drew it out in miniature form). I drew maybe 6 sketches that I found and then chose which one to use later.

Anyways, this card was made to go with the altered tin in the previous post.

It uses the same stamp set (Roses In Winter) and it uses the Autumn color palette from CTMH for inks/papers. It also uses a couple background stamps from SU...the Linen one and also the diamond check one (can't think of the name...too early in the morning LOL!). For that little piece I sanded the paper (CTMH has white core paper so sanding it removes some of the brightness of the paper) and then I stamped on it. Edges of most of the papers are distressed as well (drug with a pair of scissors). And there is lots of sponging and faux stitching. The sentiment is from CTMH.

K...gotta run off to work. If you aren't working today...then go PLAY! ;-)
