Addicted to Stamps and More, I enjoy working with sketches. I will be honest, and say I didn't at one time, but I have found they are inspirational, I find I design cards in a way I may never have previously thought of and being honest, how many of us need to sometimes venture from our comfort zones. Here is my interpretation of the above sketch, but please do look at our blog for there are some fabulous samples from the design team.
Apart from the greeting there is no stamping on this card, which is, for me, moving from my comfort zone.
I embossed the background on a pink card, then matted onto dark brown paper. Placed the picture from Crafty Individuals in the centre, First framed and raised with foam pads a fancy die-cut square, then a smaller die cut square to complete the frame. Added pearls for a feminine touch. Looking forward to seeing how you have been inspired by the sketch.
