Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #36






Hello, back on safe ground again today with my card for the Waltzingmouse Sketch #36. 
Interesting sketch don't you think?   I've flipped it for my card,  it's OK that's allowed!




The pretty blossom from Asian Garden features on the front of my card. Stamped in SU close to cocoa and blushing bride directly ove the DP which is from Kaisercraft English Rose 6 x6 collection.
Three of the larger blossoms stamped to a scrap of pink card and cut with a small circle Spellbinder die. The middle one I cut out and popped up over some pale tan card.  A sentiment from the set stamped off to the left before this layer was machine stitched to more of the pale tan card.
To finish off I added tiny pale pink gems from AnnaBelle Stamps to the centre of the large blossoms and a few of the smaller ones.

This card is on it's way to the UK to cheer up my Aunt who has to stay in hospital for a while.
Back soon with a quick Digital card from Pink Petticoat. Hope to see you then....

Oh my, what an absolutely lovely card, Sue!. Stamping directly on the DP gives the card such texture - it almost looks like fabric. I love it! Asian Gardens is such a wonderful set, isn't it?
