Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge



My stamping friend Linda Payne, who is the Design Team Leader, asked me to join Isabella's Sketchbook group on Paper Craft Planet.  On Isabella's Sketchbook blog there is a challenge and you just need to use one of her sketches to participate.  I downloaded Isabella's  free digi, which is this beautiful flower image, and decided to join in on the challenge. You know how much I love to make cards with flowers!   

This pretty image was printed off and colored with Copic markers.  The verse is from MTME.  It was cut out with Nestabilities Label Nine.  The background paper is from the Making Memories Wedding paper pad.  A Martha Stewart punched border was added to the bottom.  It has a purple ribbon threaded through the lattice then a purple bow added.  White Cuttlebug corners were added on top then purple rhinestones added to the center of each flower. 

If you would like to join in on this challenge and/or get this pretty digital image, go to Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge here.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Selma, your card is beautiful! I love how you used the image. It is a great one isn't it. I see that corner detail you used all the time and it is stunning! I don't have it so every time that I see it I drool!

Thanks for sharing this beautiful piece of art with us at Isabella's.

Hi Selma,

Well, I am going to try once again to post a comment.

I love this card. The flowers are so lacy and they just seems to be fluttering in the breeze. The background is gorgeous and really adds a classy look to the card.

Great Job.
