I am home sick from church today on day 2 of a stomach bug and decided to finish off a card that I started during DTGD for Kelli Jo's challenge. I went through featured stamper Shendrian/ Sharon's gallery and found lots of inspiration! I hope to go back for more later but decided on this card http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=296914 for layout inspiration. My main panel was fingerpainted with texture paste and glass beads for the flowers. I smeared blue acrylic paint around the base. Once dry, I fingerpainted the leaves and then randomly added some text in black ink. I diecut a sentiment. I rounded the corners and laid it over a Melon Mambo panel that I angled on the corners as in Sharon's original card. I found a piece of dp for the back piece and dry embossed the turquoise and green pieces.
*just realized that Sharon's card was from a sketch challenge and I have added the keyword for the sketch-I did follow Sharon's twists on the sketch with the corner treatment of the main panel as well as the dry embossing and switch to two instead of 3 diagonal strips and dry embossing them.

I'm so sorry you're not feeling well, Gail. Thank you for taking the time to make a card. Your choice is one of my favorites - I really liked the sketch. Your card is very pretty with cheery colors, dry embossing and a lovely image. It's a beautiful case of my card! Feel better.
