Here is my card for this week's sketch. I used the Heart tree from Priscilla Styles and Tilda with Lady Bug. I love the cute scene that these two images make together. I used Webster's Pages Nature collection paper, as the colors matched perfectly and gave fantastic soft colors to the card.
I changed up the sketch a little, as the oval shape just did not work with my images. SO, I cut the Tree out with my Lacey Circle Nestie die, and wove a silk ribbon through it. The ribbon was cream in color, and I used my Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Stain to dab the coral color onto the ribbon to match my card colors. I LOVE how perfectly it matches! I also used roses instead of hearts along the right side of my card, as the sketch suggested. Again, my Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst stain came in handy. I painted white roses with the coral color again to match. Then I added some other pink roses and cherry blossoms to finish off the flower arrangement.
I colored my images with copics
