I've Been Thinking About You

Below is the Sketch Challenge

This card was made for the Tuesday StampTV Sketch Challenge.  

It was so fun working on this card because I LOVE the design paper I used.    I followed Melissa's sketch challenge using design paper from the Graphic 45 "Le'Romantique Collection".  The stamp used for the verse is from Gina K's "Enjoy the Sunshine" StampTV kit.  I love the script and it is beautiful with the dp.  It was stamped on ivory card stock.  To frame the sentiment, I used the ScorPal to draw  double lines around it.  Two pieces of the design paper were cut to complete the sketch challenge.  A piece of lace was placed over a strip of "Always Artichoke" card stock and placed over the seam.  I created three roses out of the dusty peach vellum and punched leaves from green vellum.  I wanted to create roses to match the images in the design paper.  The little butterflies are from Theresa's "Sending Sunshine" stamp set, also available from Gina K..  They were stamped on peach paper with brown ink and cut out to "flitter" around the flowers.  

The Graphic 45 Design Paper Pad, vellum, and lace were purchased from Joan's Gardens.  

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope I have given you some inspiration for your creative day.
