Here's the card I came up with. First off, I LOVE this sketch!!! I've been hooked on using this card size (5.75 x 3.5) for awhile now and it worked perfectly with it. I broke in the new Basic Grey Porcelain paper too. Such pretty, Spring colors!! I choose to use the new Inkadinkado Branch of Flowers stamp. Isn't that a great image? It has an oriental, elegant look to it that can be used for so many different themes. I stamped the image once on Very Vanilla and then onto my Basic Grey Porcelain paper. I then took my EK Success Cutter Bee Scissors (because they are the best for cutting out detailed images) and cut out all of the flowers. I glued most of them directly onto the image and raised 3 of them with dimensionals. For extra embellishments, I glued on a Prima Petitie Fleur Cherry Blossom with Crystal Effects, added some Basic Grey Porcelain Glazed brads and tied on some Spring Moss Twill. Voila - a perfect little notecard to send this Spring. I can't wait to see how y'all use this sketch!!
