Flowers Thank You Card - Freshly Made Sketches 150 Challenge

Whilst looking at Pinterest I came across a sketch layout that really caught my eye.  When I found it was the current challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches I had to play along!  


I rotated the sketch and made a portrait oriented card.  I cut a piece off the front of my Pool Party A6 sized card base so that the flowers would extend beyond the edge.  I glued a panel of Whisper White CS inside the card.  Mixed Bunch, Flower Shop and Petite Petals sets were used to make my flowers which I stamped with Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay inks.  The black circles for the flower centres were cut from the Owl Builder punch and I applied Crystal Effects to make them glossy.  To make the sentiment banner I cut Bermuda Bay CS using the large die from the Apothecary Accents set and I cut off the top and bottom pieces of the shape.  After gluing the banner in place I added a strip of Basic Black CS to the side of the card front and popped up the flowers.  A large rhinestone on the banner was the finishing touch for the card front.

Here's a closer look at the glossy flower centres.

As always, I decorated the inside of the card... 

... and the envelope. 

What a fab layout, I really enjoyed using this sketch!  I'll have to try it again with the original landscape orientation.
