H2H - Floral Birthday Card

Welcome to this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge!

We have a sketch for you this week. A sketch is a starting point and although this one has measurements on it, please remember that a sketch can certainly be altered - just make sure that it is visible in your project. 

I chose to stay true to the sketch, which I don't do very often. This one just worked for what I had in mind. I did rotate it a quarter turn to create a vertical card instead of a horizontal card. 

The card base (Linen) was splattered using three shimmer brushes. The papers are from the Eat Play Love paper pack and the current Mix-In paper pack. I used one of the flowers from the patterned paper for the focal point on the card. The sentiment was masked and stamped in two different colours. I added some gold embellishing thread and gold glitter gems. The flower was brushed with the gold shimmer brush and the card was outlined with a fine tipped marker.

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us how you interpret the sketch shown above. 

You have until the end of March to link up your project. 

We can’t wait to see what you create!

Lovely card! I may have to take another look at those papers. Love the doodling around the edges.
