TSOT 642 - Purple Flowers

 Welcome to Try a Sketch on Tuesday Challenge 642! 

This sketch has a lot happening - diagonal stripes, a horizontal strip, a centre focal point and a sentiment. It took me a while to plan my card with each of the elements. 

I die cut a stitched floral background from medium grey cardstock and then die cut three long strips with a leaf pattern. They were adhered across the card front and I added a strip of silver shimmer tape just below the centre line. The flowers and leaves were stamped, stencilled and die cut and added according to placement on the sketch. The sentiment was hot foiled and placed at the top. Some iridescent gems were added to the card front and I adhered the card front to a white mat and then a dark purple base. The centres of the flowers were brushed with clear Stickles to add some shine. 

Come and join us at TSOT and show us how you interpret this week's sketch.
