Hello everyone. I am back with another card. This card follows sketch and photo inspiration from The Shabby Tea Room this week. You are asked to create a card or project inspired by COLORS FROM THE PHOTO AND USE THE SKETCH!

I love sketches and was so delighted that one was being offered this week. I started by created my main flower. I don't have any orange flowers, so I made one. I followed a crepe paper flower tutorial from Pinterest. Click here if you'd like to have a go! I layered it with a flourish die and then with some tulle, to build it up and to add some texture.

I used a paper pad and they are great as they offer embellishments and options. I fussy cut the birdcage from a piece of patterned paper and added a seam binding bow and flower. I also used a border trim and jazzed it up by adding some pearls.


Paper: Kaisercraft Le Chateau 6" paper pad, Stampin' Up! designer series bright, DCWV neutral stack

Ink: Colorbox chestnut roan

Other: Memory Box Quinn flourish, Stampin' Up! linen thread and crumb cake scalloped tulle ribbon, Prima flower, Kaisercraft pearls, seam binding.

Thanks for stopping  by!
