Over at Card patterns (http://cardpatterns.blogspot.com/) here is Sketch 151 for this week:
And here is my card for the challenge:
I liked the idea of the basic sketch, so I went with that. I have had these Autumn Leaves flourish clear stamps forever and was going to give them away because I never use them, when this sketch idea turned up. The stamps matched perfectly! You never know what you might need out of your stash! That's why you need a stash! I stamped the flourish onto a Bazzill shaped card (actually half of a 6" x 12" scallop shape) with olive Clearsnap Fluid Chalk ink. I then went over the inking with an Atyou Spica glitter pen in olive. I added the saying (Hero Arts) with Memento Tuxedo Black and then went over that with the black Atyou spica glitter pen. I mounted it to a yellow-ish green panel and then onto a green square white card. The ribbon at the top is crinkle ribbon from Creative Imaginations and I tied the charm with a bit of May Arts natural twine. The final step was to color some pearls (Hero Arts) with a green Copic marker. I had to use a really dark green to get the color to show. Even though this card is simple, I think it is perfectly elegant as a sympathy card.
