Inspirational Card Sketch #53

If you haven't done so already, sign up for my The Greeting Farm blog candy located in my right hand sidebar.


Man the East Coast has been having tons of snow this winter season and today we are supposed to get more. Looks like Phil was right. Today Dawn, at the Inspirational Card Sketches Blog, has given us a fabulous sketch to play with. I really like all the different long panels in this sketch. I've updated my sidebar to include the new gals on the DT at ICS, please go welcome them by leaving some love on their blogs. This week our fabulous sponsor again is Carolyn from Busy Beauties Boutique. If you haven't checked out their store yet you really need to. You could win a $10 gift card just for playing along. Pretty sweet huh?

For my card I used Lovestruck Beauty from Busy Beauties and paired it with scrap paper. A vintage sweet combo. Just a few half pearl embelishments to add a little elegance. I colored the image with my copics and created the clouds for her to sit on. I sponged the edges of the card and the clouds with distress inks to give it a little aged look.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
