Skipping Stones Design Sketch 117


Today begins another sketch challenge at Skipping Stones Design!  This is our final sketch for February provided by Kazan Clark.  I am especially excited to show you my card today because it's a little sneak peek of a gorgeous set that will be released next month.

This beautiful set is aptly named Beautiful Botanicals and it will be available for purchase on March 12.  It is a follow up of sorts to the very popular Dandelion Dreams and the sets complement each other so well- but more on that later. 

For my card today, I inked the large floral image with a light pink ink and followed up with a few pounces of dark pink ink to give it more interest.  I stamped the sentiment in black and matted the stamped image on a piece of yellow cardstock.  I added a piece of doily, some pink pleated ribbon and buttons before adhering all the bits and pieces to a kraft card based covered with pretty yellow paper from the October Afternoon Sidewalks collection. 

Here is a close up of the sentiment and ribbon: 

And here is the sketch the team is working with today:
