SCS236 Love Gives...

I had a chance to sit down and play with this week's SCS Sketch Challenge. I really quite liked this layout and will probably use it again.

Today I decided to use the brand new Let Us Begin by Our Daily Bread Designs to make a simple, elegant card. What a wonderful sentiment this is and such a beautiful corner lotus!

I started with a base of Very Vanilla, layered with Fawn Bazzill and some paper by Paperie. The next panel is actually some 2" wide ivory ribbon with a piece of VV underneath punched with the EK success Fleur de Lis punch. The next panel is some more Paperie DSP matted with VV and a gold swirl clip with some 1/2" ivory satin ribbon knotted on it. The main panel was cut with Lg Rectangle Nestabilities has the sentiment stamped in Chocolate Chip and the corner lotus image stamped in versamark and embossed with gold embossing poweder. Then I've pierced around the edge of the panel and added some Chino Kaisercraft pearls to the corners. I've finished off by adding some larger Chino pearls to the corners of the card.

Stamps - Let Us Begin - ODBD

Paper - Very Vanilla, Fawn Bazzill, Paperie

Ink - Chocolate Chip, Versamark

Accessories - Fleur de Lis border punch, gold embossing powder, 2" ivory satin ribbon, 1/2" ivory satin ribbon, Lg Rectangle Nestabilities, gold swirl clip, Chino pearls (kaisercraft), paper piercer and mat pack.

That's all for now, thanks for visiting!! :)

WHOA! This is amazing! You totally rocked this sketch (I really didn't like it and not so fond of my card). You changed the proportions just perfect. The colors are soft and beautiful. The spiral clip, the corner flourish, the punch border, the pearls the ribbon - literally everything on this is perfection!! Hugs,
