Flower Pot


Hi everyone!  Today's card was created for the OWH Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #29.  This is the second card I've made using this lovely patterned paper so don't go thinking that you are imagining things!  I have to admit the layers on my first card are much lovelier!  The flower pot is a free digital image from Fred, She Said.

Today's card base is Mellow Moss layered with a slightly smaller piece of Cranberry Crisp then Memories Polka Dot Patterned Paper.  The shadow layer is a 2 x 5 strip of Mellow Moss cardstock finished on the bottom using the corner rounder punch and two medium gold brads.

The image measures 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 and was colored in using copic markers.  I paper pierced the edges then layered on to a slightly larger piece of Cranberry Crisp cardstock before attaching to the card base using mounting tape.

That's it for today, thanks for stopping by!

I'm always in awe of how you match papers to colored images! I love how the piercing mirrors the polka dots in the dp, and I'm surprised with how rounding the bottom corners changed the whole look of the sketch! Beautiful!

Oh Karen, this is gorgeous! I love the dotted paper and I really like what you did with the green strip from the sketch, I'm having a hard time with this one! I'll have to try it again with your inspiration ;), I think my images are too big...
