FTTC154–Silke’s Sketch Challenge

 

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone~

I am glad to say that I am getting better from the cold my husband gave me last week, lol! I have more energy to do things now including stamping!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC154)! Silke has provided the sketch to play along this week. Please visit Flourishes blog for more information about the challenge.

 

 

 

Here is my card using the sketch.

Sweet_Days_of_Summer_1-1_ed

Sweet_Days_of_Summer_1-2_ed

I used Sweet Days of Summer for the image. It was heat embossed with the black embossing powder and added the color with the yellow Copic marker. The sentiment  from Tag Lines was stamped and the mat was sponged with the Distress Ink. The card was designed with the Prima designer papers and decorative borders that were created with double edge punch. I tied the baker’s twine and embellished the tea rose flowers and rhinestones to finish off.
