Feeling Sketchy Challenge May - Week 7 14/05/2012

Week 7 Sketch for "Feeling Sketchy" 

My Mother In-law's Mother's Day Card.
I found a great idea of Z-fold card on the Internet,
so I thought I would give it a go with this sketch.
Paper from Stampin Up.
Due to the fact that it moves when the front is opened,
 I had to lower the star (flower in my case) element.
Inks are Tim Hotlz distress inks -  "forest moss, walnut stain and stormy sky".
 Dies from My Favourite Things "Royal Rose and Royal Leaves" were  used for the flower.
Embossing folder "Drifting Endless" from Couture Creation.

Close up of the sentiment. Pearls from Spot Light.

The rose is blue and green and is also painted with "linen" shimmer spray.
Sorry my photo didn't pick this up very well.


  1. I actually made this on Monday, NOT Sunday.I think my blog has "Monday-its" today - I keep loosing my "back ground" as well.
