This is for today's sketch challenge. I used SU's Just Believe set and for the main panel I stamped the flowers of the image in Pink Pirouette and grass and stems in Certainly Celery. Then I used markers and highlighted the flowers in Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral and the grass and stems in Pear Pizzaz and Wild Wasabi. For additional dimension I used a white gel pen. I mounted this panel on Calypso Coral and Basic Black. My base is Whisper White with a layer of Basic Black. The upper panel of the next layer is Whisper White run through the BS with the Swiss Dots ef and bottom panel with the Stripes ef. The remaining elements are also from Just Believe. Added a small 1/8" black taffeta ribbon.
This did not come out the way I pictured it but I was to far into it to start over. I think it is the Calypso Coral; maybe to bright for my softer image. I dunno...
Anywho, TFL and you let me know what you think!
Have a great Wednesday!

I love this card. When I saw it I had to smile, I was thinking of using that stamp set on the challenge today too! The circle is perfect for it. I'm kinda brain dead from making all those cards for the dtgd challenges and I couldn't decide what color to use. I'm glad you used it, it's a beautiful card. The colors are perfect with the muted look. tfs

Okay, this is just gorgeous!! Love how you did your flowers and added the extras behind the sentiment. I'm not really a fan on the 1/8" ribbon, but it works to perfection on your card. Going into my faves!
