Sketch & Stash #32


Hi girls. Thank you for taking the time to visit me here. I appreciate you making the effort. I hope you find something to please the eye.
Saturday again and another weekend is upon us, the special weekend when we remember the greatest sacrifice ever made. I hope that you enjoy this Easter weekend and have a momemt to grasp the significance of what we celebrate.
I made this card for the Sketch & Stash challenge where they gave us a great sketch to follow. I inked up Magnolia's "Tilda with Flowers" and coloured her using my Copics. The design paper I used is from the Graphic 45 Baby and Bride Collection and I used plain card to matt and layer. The ribbon is new from my stash and the flowers are homemade by me.
This card was fairly straightforward to make but I am not at all sure about it. I haven't put a sentiment on it and I think it might look a bit empty. I hope you like it though because I would love it if you left a comment for me - even if it's to tell me that there is something missing. I get so much help and encouragement from them.
ANOTHER TWO AWARDS




I received these two awards from these two wonderful crafting buddies:-

  9. Hi Fiona Hope your having a great time with your family.
    I really love this card and don't think it looks empty at all, I think it is just perfectly embellished and a sentiment will finish it off. Love how you have done the edging around the Tilda image.
