For today's sketch, and also for the current In Sitches ODBD challenge. I'd wanted to use this set yesterday but it didn't work out.
A2 base, pink Bazzill for matting and Basic Grey Lily Kate paper. The image and sentiment panels are white Bristol Board sponged with Antique Linen before stamping. I used Versafine Smokey Grey to keep a soft look.
I stitched the two DP panels with pink to look a bit like quilting - I'm glad nobody will get to see the back of those panels!! Image coloured with distress inks - Bundled Sage, Tattered Rose, Frayed Burlap and Wild Honey. I added little pearls in the left-hand corners, and popped the image and sentiment panels up on foam dots.

What a beautiful, beautiful card! It is so soft and serene. I love how you stitched the paper, it gives it such charm.

This is one OUTSTANDING card. First the colors are soft and delicate. I'm amazed at the stitching you did on the paper. It looks great on the screen, but I bet in real life it's even more amazing. All your layers are so neatly done. Just one wonderful card. into my favs. tfs
