Card Sketch Tuesday #170

Greetings all! Here is sketch #170 and measurements are below.

Card base = 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
1 = 4 x 2
2 = 4 x 3 3/4
3 = 4 x 1 1/2

The main flower image is from Victorine Originals. I used markers directly on the stamp and spritzed with water and stamped it on watercolor paper. The sentiment is from Papertrey, Ink.

The designer paper is from Paper Pizazz and you can barely notice the subtle difference between layer 1 and 2 in my card. I found that cool organdy/satin ribbon in my stash that goes well with this color combo IRL. I think purples are so hard to photograph up close. I also got lucky and found some tiny purple rhinestones from Kaiser Craft to put under the sentiment. The Martha Stewart cornice punch was used on the sentiment layer and labels four nestabilites was used to layer, cut and emboss the main stamped image.

I made this yesterday and subconsciously I think I was making it for myself! I have caught a cold (first one in about three years) and I really feel like crud! and to top it off, I'm currently in Alaska on business. I flew out on Monday morning and I bet I'm just miserable in the cold and snow! Can you tell that I have this scheduled to post and I'm typing it early? LOL!

Thanks for stopping by. Oh and this will be my last sketch post - there are so many other places that offer sketches that I doubt anyone will miss mine! (grin) Thanks to those loyal followers who made comments regularly. I appreciate you!
