STAMPlorations Bi-weekly Sketch Challenge #22

Hi friends! Its time for a new sketch challenge at STAMPlorations Bi-weekly Sketch Challenge #22. This challenge ends on October 31st and the winners would be announced on November 2nd. We have a very talented Guest Designer Leslie Hanna joining us for this challenge. She makes amazing cards. You can check out more of her creations at her blog The Crooked Stamper

Let's get to the sketch and my card...
To make this card, I wanted to use the stamp from a new line of STAMPlorations called Bee's Knees - Rosebuds. These stamps are designed by our very talented Shirley Bampton. The stamps are so fab and trendy. So I started out by stamping and embossing the rosebuds around a lightly marked oval on a water color cardstock. Then I used distress inks to water color my card. Finally, to create a focal point, I drew an oval with white gel pen, stamped sentiment and added some pearls. I am entering this card to a few challenges - Crazy for CAS #55 - One layer and stampedCAS on Sunday #44 - Emboss itInkspirational #67 - Purple and Grey

  9. Stunning Deepti, so much I love here. The background mix of colours with the lighter section looks like the sun is bursting though the flowers and the soft oval frame is a great way to use the sketch x
