This card was inspired by jandjccc's (Mary T) gorgeous card which you can view here. The dandelions were stamped in SU going gray and again in Versamark and embossed in white. It was then sponged in Distress Broken China and matted on vellum and white. The background was airbrushed with various blues. The side panel also was airbrushed a bit lighter and stamped with a music stamp. I then soaked a small brush in alcohol and used that to spray alcohol on the side panel for a few speckles- hardly noticeable. The tiny bow looks gray but it's a very pale soft blue. The sentiment is computer generated. Hope this qualifies for the sketch challenge. The dandelions came out much larger than I expected. Thanks for looking.

This is beautiful Nancy! I love how you actually hand stitched your stitching. You can really tell in the photo and it adds so much more elegance than machine stitching. I love it!!!!!
