The card for today's post is a challenge with a crew of crafty individuals - the challenge you ask, follow a sketch and there may be a prize, easy peasy lemon squeezy. This sketch was perfect as I tackled this yesterday, I had a crazy busy week that left me minus even a hint of a crafty spark, I found the sketch easy to follow and it was simple to put something together for the card.
I followed the sketch, and I even used the required measurements and everything, a big win for me because when it comes to crafting I am horrible at following directions or measurements.
Each panel is layered with cardstock and designer paper, I added some silver twine to the base layer and popped the top two panels up with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment and leaves with 4 different gray inks to get an ombre effect. I added a touch of Wink of Stella for a hint of sparkle. I finished my card with some clear gems.
Supplies: White and Gray cardstock, Designer Paper - Stampin' Up! Peony Garden, Stampin' Up! - Sending Sunshine and Thoughtful Banners, twine and gems.
Thank you Crystal for organizing the challenge and providing the sketch.
