The theme this week is open - but we have a sketch to guide us on layout. Now - I love sketches because I love the inspiration they give me & I store them away for when my mojo takes a holiday!
Here is the sketch;
Here is my card;
The base card is cream with a gold shimmer - which I cut from an A4 sheet to suit the design. Now, the CD I used is a freebie on a magazine called "Digital Essentials" (well, there were 2 CD's actually). They contain images, paper, embellishments etc from a variety of companies & designers. For example, Dreamees, Kim Dellow, Kate Hadfield, Hot off the Press, Lilac & Lavender & others.
The floral images were taken from Lilac & Lavender's section. I trimmed the images & placed them on these Kraft tags which I had to trim to suit the toppers. The trim behind the images is a strip of the same card which I cut with my picot edged scalloped scissors & I lightly coloured it with Vintage Photo distress Ink to create a contrast. I also coloured the tag strings & stamped the sentiment with the same ink. A group of pearl gold coloured gems at 2 of the corners to finish. The other thing I did was to "scribble" a random squiggle line around the card edges to give it a frame. I used a very fine Signo Uni-ball pen in green. Not sure what I think. I like the squiggle frame - not sure about the green.
Thank you for stopping by I hope you enjoyed your visit.
