Case This Sketch and SSS Wednesday Challenge

Hi Everyone,
With this card I am combining challenges: CASe this Sketch and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge. I flipped the sketch on its side for my card. I used the Memory Box Tilth flower die (I think this was one of the very first MB dies I bought and I have been hooked ever since) to cut the flower from a piece of left over cardstock that I had water-coloured. I used the same die to cut the black outline. Then I used the SSS "waves" stencil to create the background. I sponged with Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks. I used the same tilth flower die to cut out the main panel and then inlaid the black outline and the water coloured petal centers. Finally, I pulled out a Technique Tuesday stamp I bought ages ago and have never used. I inked that up with Versafine Black Onyx and stamped - card complete. This card did not really come from a set plan; it just developed organically as I completed each step. I am really pleased with the way it turned out.

Thanks for stopping - I would love to hear your feedback!

Happy Stamping,
