This card was made for the JUGS (Just Us Girls) Saturday challenge. This week they have a Sketch challenge and it is sponsored by JustRite stamps. You are asked to use JustRite stamps if you have them.
I always enjoy doing sketch challenges and since I love JustRite stamps thought I should create a card for this challenge. I started this challenge out by choosing my design paper first. I seldom do this. This is from the Basic Grey "Cappella" Paper Pad. I love the soft colors. In this design there are mums, so I chose the mum stamp from the JustRite "Beautiful Blossoms" Set. It was stamped on white card stock and cut out with a Nestie. The flowers were colored using Copic markers. I wanted to add a "real" bow over the stamped bow in the image so I stamped the image twice and cut out the largest flower and one set of leaves so I could put them on dimensionals. This gives a more realistic look since I wanted a "real" bow. The background was sponged with pearlized chalks. A Sky Blue scalloped Nestie was cut out and attached behind the design with dimensionals.
A Martha Stewart border was punched along one edge of Blush Blossom card stock and again using Sky Blue card stock. A wide piece of sky blue silk ribbon was added across the border then another piece of trim on top of that. ScorTape was used to attach all layers. Pearls were added on each punched scallop.
The sentiment used is from the new JustRite "Baroque Nested Frames" set. I love the beautiful font. Two corduroy brads were added to the upper left corner to complete the sketch.
This is a beautiful sketch and enjoyed creating this card.
