MMSC21 Sketch Challenge

Today, I needed a good challenge. I got one with Priscilla's sketch of the week. I created this card using SEI's Mimosa. The cardstock and papers by SEI are very pretty and fun to use. I used a floral embossing folder to create the embossed layers. Then cut them up in 4 squares-redesigned the 4-square pattern and then built additional layers upon them. I have said in other post that sometimes you have scrapbook paper that you just can not cover up and that was the case with this design. So, I decided to add a layer of transparency that I stamped with some flowers. I then used a spritzer to add some speckles of black to the background. The last touch was to add some embellishments to finish off the card. Enjoy....K

It thrills me to see someone who thinks outside the box...I love your take on this sketch with a "twist". So cool! This is fabulous...really delightful. Your right...you can't cover up all that beautiful embossing and paper. Just lovely. Thanks for playing along with us this week at MMSC. We sure to appreciate it and hope you will stay tuned for all the fun happenings at Priscilla's blog this month!
