Inspired by a Sketch

Our team has the following sketch challenge this month:
As the challenge was my idea, I thought I'd better set to and made a card! LOL! I was dying to finally try out using the scallop trim border punch for a circle or oval using Andrea Buckland's fab tutorial (here) and am very happy with how it turned out. Here's my card:

As I'm featuring Shimmer Paint and Shimmer Mist in this month's classes, I used both on this card. Both pieces of DSP have been sprayed with shimmer mist, while the petals of the flowers had shimmer paint applied over the marker ink. Here's a couple of close ups so you can see the sparkles:

Materials used: (all SU)
  • stamps - Inspired by Nature, Curly Cute
  • card and paper - crumb cake, basic black, very vanilla, Newsprint DSP, Jolly Holiday DSP
  • punches - scallop trim border, square
  • other - Victoria crochet trim, antique brad, dimensionals, shimmer paint, sponge daubers, circle scissors
Thanks for calling in today.
