Tuesday Morning Sketches #465

Hello! Thank you for stopping by.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a fairly clean and simple one but you can certainly jazz it up, too.

My card features Beautiful Flowers stamp set by Simon Says Stamp, black card stock from Ellen Hutson and Metallic Platinum embossing powder by Wow!  When I started this card, this original intention was to create a card like the one Jennifer McGuire made.  She used the same stamp and watercolored with Distress Oxide inks.  But I did the heat embossing and thought the card was stunning just like that - I didn't have the heart to add to it.

I did emboss some double lines using my Scor-Buddy for my sentiment area.  I then stamped a white panel with the same stamp in black ink for the inside (not pictured) and the back flap of an envelope.  I added a few gold sequins after I mounted the stamped panel onto a top folding card base.  I used black fun foam to add some dimension.

I hope to see you at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and can't wait to see your card!  Also, please visit the design team.
