Another card using Stamping 411's sketch 188


Well, forgive me if I love this sketch!  There's lots of detail to be found here -- I could've added more, but I didn't want it to get too cluttered.  

                                    

The central layer was stamped with the floral spray from Together Forever then watercolored with Pretty in Pink, Concord Crush, Night of Navy, Old Olive and Always Artichoke.  I wanted a floral to go with the stripe pattern from the Lap of Luxury ds, but I couldn't find it -- so I made my own.

The sentiment 'amour' is surrounded by the garland from Together Forever, which I inked with markers in order to make the distinction between the leaves and the flowers.  I pieced the scallop circle around it and put the medium pearl Jewels in each scallop.

The pansy trim beneath the ribbon was cut from Concord Crush with a cute pansy border punch.  I cut bits of Old Olive to go behind each pansy cut-out and put a medium pearl in each center.
