To My Mom

Sketch Card #167
Hello everyone !!! This is the sketch for today's challenge. I picked out the Basic Gray and Basic Black from yesterday's colors and changed Purely Pomegranate to Groovy Guava. I used the Tres Chic BG, then I stamped the leaf stamp in black for the 2 panels. I used a strip of DSP and stamp the flowers and used Vellum on top to give it a subtle look. I stamped the flowers in the circle frame and layered it with Nesties. I added just a touch of stickles and used the Narrow White organdy Ribbon and Satin Black ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by.
RECIPE:
Stamps: Embrace Life, tres Chic
Paper: Basic Gray, Basic Black, Groovy Guava, Whisper White, DSP
Ink: Staz-On black, White Craft, Groovy Guava, White Gel Pen
Accessories: Ribbons, Brads, Stickles, Hemp
Tools: Nesties, Circle Punches, 1/16 Punch, Dimensionals
