Card sketch #71 - Unforgettable

Here's sketch #71. Measures 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 and folds at the top. I found this yummy light turquoise and brown designer paper in the My minds eye slab of paper and thought it would make a great back ground for this card.

I used my mega scalloped punch for the circle and my nestabilities for the straight circle. The flower is stamped in versamark and then embossed with white glacier embossing powder. The sentiment and the layered piece behind it is also cut from a nestabilities die. The sentiment is stamped in Palette burnt umber ink on a piece of the DP. I think it blends in, but works well with this. I popped the circle and the bottom layer up with foam tape, but it's hard to tell in the photo.

Have a great week!
