Freshly Made Sketches Weekly Challenge

However, today primary colours must still be in my headspace because for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge I made this.

Right up until I was adding the sequin I wasn't sure about this card, in my head I knew exactly what I wanted but as I putting it together I was full of doubt.  Now I love it.  

I used the new Cotton Paper from Stampin' Up! die cut and stamped from Flower Patch and coordinating dies then layered with foam dots onto a Basic Gray Striped Cover Up die from My Favorite Things, Dienamics.  I used a large Pierced a Tag to create the accent at the bottom, which had been stamped with Sweater Knit with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  I then used the 'Hello' only from the Hello Life stamp set from SU then die cut this with a small tag die.  I used Watermelon Wonder ink from SU with this.  A small foam dot and Glossy Accents were used to adhere this down.  

From the side you can see how the petals curl, I used a bone folder on all the petals for this.

Inside I used a Stitched Rectangle from Dienamics and a die from Hello You from SU.  This was die cut in whisper white and watermelon wonder and I offset them slightly to create a bit of a shadow effect.  Silver sequin then added to embellish front and inside.  

Why not head over to Freshly Made Sketches blog, click here and see what others have been creating.

See you tomorrow.  Take care of you.
