Limelight sketch challenge is to make a birthday card using this sketch.
The sketch served as my card inspiration, and though it was a basic sketch, the juices were not flowing well today so it took a lot longer than I thought it would. Hate days like that. Think this mommy needs some serious mommy time after a very busy past few weeks.
I jumped at the chance to use my Verve Great Friend flowers as you can layer them so nicely. I tried a few different DPs but it wasn't working for me so I kept the layers solid colours and just swiss dotted the layers. I hand cut a few leaves and scored the backs of them with my stylus to create some veins. I really wish I had some wider moss coloured ribbon but no such luck so I had to settle for the narrow version instead. Everything is popped up on and the sentiment balanced things off nicely.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend and thanks for sharing a tiny bit of it with me today :)
