The Paper Players 346:




Happy Sunday all!  I do hope the weekend has been good to you!

This week at The Paper Players, Laurie is our host with this SKETCH challenge:




Don't you just LOVE this sketch?!?  
I wanted to use some bright happy colours and I thought these flowers would be perfect to complete my card.  I used a ombre blending technique and did a little water splooshing to give the flowers and leaves a bit more dimension.  I wanted them to stand out so I built up the sketch using all white.



Stamps:  Clearly Besotted Fresh Flowers
Die cuts:  My Favorite Things Horizontal Stitched StripsMy Favorite Things Blueprints 13Simon Says Stamp Single Roses, Reverse Confetti Class Act
Frosting: Tsukineko Versafine Onyx BlackStampin' Up! inks


I would also like to enter my card into the following challenge:
