OWH Sketch Challenge #41

The new sketch challenge for the week has been posted over on the Stars and Stamps Blog, and here is my take on it.

Paper: Hero Arts Notecard, PTI cardstock, Neenah Solar White
Stamps: Hero Arts, PTI
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Embossing ink, Dusty Concord Distress Ink
Other: Lace (Hobby Lobby), Pearls (HA)

I wanted to use this beautiful lace I found at Hobby Lobby so I sewed a small strip of it to the card to add some elegance.  The Fabulous Flourish is from Hero Arts and I stamped that with Embossing Ink and embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder.  I then stamped and coloured, with Copics, the Marigold from PTI, added a few white dots with a gel pen and some pearls in the centre. The white panel was distressed on the edges and inked with some Dusty Concord Distress ink.  The sentiment is from a different PTI Year of Flowers stamp set.

Enjoy your Halloween festivities!  We are about to head out the door even though we are all a bit under the weather with a respiratory bug, but what can one do when you have a four year old that has been looking forward to this for weeks!
