Card Sketch #85 - Dream

Hi everyone! Here's sketch #85 measuring the normal A2 size.

This one turned out soft looking and could be used for a masculine card. I created the tie downs using a small circle punch, brads and some string. I got the idea from a digital scrapbook element and decided to try to recreate it on a card.

I used Palette burnt umber ink to stamp the main image and sentiment and then used a dauber to sponge around the edges. The copper embossing was a last minute addition and in hind sight, I should have used gold ep. It might have matched the eyelet color a little better. Oh well, lol!

I hope everyone has a great week!

Thanks for the award! I'll soon be doing a post with all those awards I've gotten and sending some many ways!

Congrats in being part of a design team, doesn't it feel great?! I know how does it feel and I am proud of you.

Really like this sketch and the details you put into it. Can't help you in how to cut the circle, except by making it out of the square and then placing another square in the outside and removing the lines of it so it would not show off in your image. Then you group together and voila!
