A Trio Of Flowers

Happy Tuesday, everyone!!!  Today's card was created for this week's OWH Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #31.  I love this sketch because the shadow layers are off center and fill up lots of space on the card.  One of the things I struggle with is white space so I tend to fill up the card base as much as possible.

Today's card base is Night Of Navy layered with a slightly smaller piece of PTI White then pink cardstock.  The shadow layers are 1 3/4 x 3 3/4 Night Of Navy layered with a slightly smaller piece of paper pierced Ferris Wheel patterned paper.  The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White using the Sketch Flower Trio stamp and colored in using copic markers.

I paper pierced around the edges the layered the image on to a slightly larger piece of Night Of Navy cardstock before attaching to the card base with mounting tape.  To embellish the card I added a tiny white bow on the flower vase and some gems along the edge of the shadow layers.

Hope you have a wonderful day!
