I've used an unusual colour for me, 'red'. I have 3 colleagues at work with birthdays this week and one of them loves red so this is for her. I took a strip of red textured cardstock and stamped the flower image randomly with Versamark ink and embossed with another new product for me, white embossing powder. I then stamped the flower again and another smaller one in between in black ink. I also stamped and embossed the large flower twice onto a scrap piece of the same cardstock and then cut the two images out. The sentiment is from the same set which is actually a set that came free with a craft magazine last year which I bought just for the gift! This is stamped straight onto the card blank with the two flowers raised on foam pads. The only deviation from Jane's sketch is that I positioned the two flowers in the opposite corners as they worked better that way.
I enjoyed making this card so much that I made another one at the same time using a deep purple cardstock instead of red and altering the position of the elements a little.
Stamp set: Free gift with a craft magazine (IndigoBlu)

I have really enjoyed working with Jane's colours and sketches this month. It will be my first turn soon; I have a lot to live up to! Can't wait to see what you make of this week's sketch.
Thanks for visiting!
