AH 432 - This is Your Day

Welcome to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 432!

I stayed true to the sketch this week, adding only some flowers on top of the inside section. 

Woodgrain paper with a grey undertone was perfect for what I had in mind. Those pieces were cut to fit within a stitched rectangle. I decided on green as the background as it matched the stems on the flowers. That green cardstock was embossed with a woodgrain embossing folder and sanded to bring out the white core. I stamped and coloured the flowers - since Lilies of the Valley are white, I shaded the flowers lightly with a grey marker to add some interest. I tied a ribbon around the base of the flowers and added a sentiment at the bottom. The flowers were brushed with a shimmer brush and I added some gold Stickles around the card. 

Come and join us at Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret the sketch shown above.
