It's time for another Sketch Saturday GDT card from me... the sketch was again a little out of my usual CAS comfort zone this time so the card(s - I made two in the end!!) have come out rather busier than my recent norms... but... I really love it in the end!! :) Plus, I got to use my new (and utterly, amazingly gorgeous!!) CBS Love Blossoms Stamps and Dies on the day they arrived!! lol So, here they are...
I mainly stuck with the dies for these cards to save on time/energy as I am still feeling rather exhausted after my friends' visit last week and I used some beautiful papers which came free in Craft Seller magazine a few months ago... oh but they are soooo pretty!! :)
I shaped the flowers slightly by pressing them into my cupped palm and then they, of course, got the WoS and Stickles treatment for a bit of sparkle :)
The sentiments are layered for extra impact (as were the branches actually) - thank you to whoever came up with the stacked die cuts idea... love it!! :) The underneath layers are just cheap white card so I edged them with co-ordinating ProMarkers... fiddly but it looks so much better!! lol
