Lauras sketch #31





Wow what a great sketch to work with from 2 sketches 4 You. It was so easy to use that I was flicking through my favourite Australian card magazine and I came across a really beautiful card using these paper flowers (surrounding the '40'). As soon as I saw them I couldn't wait to have a go at them. They are a series of paper circles that have been torn and the edges inked. I have then mounted them with foam tape and I have slightly bent the edges to give them more volume. I am happy with the way they came out!
So this card is for my parents who will be celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary at the end of August (I know I am a little early!) I have used Making Memories paper, kaiser pearls, white cardstock, cuttlebug dot embossing folder, American thickers and ribbon.
Thanks for looking!
