I just love a sketch challenge to get my creative juices flowing. I really enjoyed this card sketch challenge. I used a coupe of stamp sets and a number of punches.
First of all I made my own Designer Series Paper (DSP) using the Perennial Birthday stamp set mixed with a small flower stamp from Free as a Bird. I stamped with Whisper White ink onto Balmy Blue card which measured 12.1 cm x 17.5 cm. I stuck this onto my base card which measured 25 cm x 18 cm scored and folded at 12.5 cm.
Using the Floral Essence stamp set I stamped a flower onto onto Balmy Blue card and punched out using the star burst punch. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes over the top of the flower.
I stamped and punched 4 flowers and coated with punched velum. I made a banner from Whisper White card – this measured 3 cm x 12.5 cm. Using the tear tape I adhered the white satin ribbon with the silver trim. I stamped some leaves and fussy cut them, I punched out some sprigs and arranged around the card before sticking the arrangement to the card. To give the card that pop of colour I stamped and fussy cut a couple of flowers using melon mambo ink.
