Well, I'm scrambling to get this card posted as one of the challenges I'm linking it to is ending soon. Sigh. What else is new?! LOL. I have to say that this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge really spoke to me. I thought of my idea immediately (it just took some time to get it done). I just love this sketch!
Isn't it fab?! So many possibilities! But what I saw was a little pocket full of flowers. I love the layout too which is one I don't think I've ever done before. So take a look...
Don't you just love that denim pocket? I didn't have any blue denim so I took a piece of the beige denim paper I had (DCWV - Tradewinds) made a pocket shape and use my Spectrum Noir markers to colour it. Because it was beige it gives the blue denim a muted, worn look. I stamped my sentiment (Scrappy Cat) in versamark ink and embossed in white. Then I added some hand drawn stitches with my white gel pen. I used my Slice to cut out some leaves and greenery. I attached my pocket to my card base with some foam dots then arranged and attached my leaves and that. Lastly, I adhered my pink roses. They were a $1.50 bin find at Michaels. I bought several colours too. I thought they were quite pretty. :-)
I'm going to play along with the following challenges as well:
Addicted to CAS - Code word is "Off The Edge".
Addicted to Stamps and More - it's an inspiration photo this time and the reason for the pink flowers.
CAS-ual Fridays - "three thirds". I've got my three roses.
Virginia's View Challenge- use stitching. Once again I used faux stitching. I'm just not that good at the real thing! :-)
I think that's it for now. Hope you all are having a lovely day and thanks for visiting!
