Simon Says Pick a Sketch

This week Simon Says Stamp has a sketch challenge for us, and we have 2 sketches to choose from. I chose this one and flipped it on it's side and came up with this card...

I used all SU! colors and papers and the flowers are Hero Arts, with the centers being punched & shaped cardstock. I embossed the flowers with white ep, and added 2 flourishes along with a SB scalloped cirle and a SNSS birthday sentiment. Instead of adding that little text tab, I made the sentiment my focal point, and rounded the corners to soften it just a little bit.

Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a great weekend!

Everything about this card is so very pretty, Carol. The papers make a lovely backdrop for your flowers and the way you do those flowers is beautiful. The scroll work is the ideal addition as they look like vines. All around winner. Enjoy the day.
