Beate's Weekend Challenge WSC44

I was able to find some time this weekend to play with Beat's Weekend Sketch Challenge. She has some fun sketches to play around with.

Her sketch was pretty similar to the one on SplitCoastStampers this past Wednesday. The background part was similar.

I REALLY wanted to use some decorative paper for my background but I did that on the Wednesday sketch. SO I decided I'd make my own background and just run with it. I used the flowers from the Stampin' Up! "Boho Backgrounds" set. I colored in the flowers with Pretty in Pink, the leaves in Certain Celery and white for the dots on the center of the flowers. I sponged all of the edges with Chocolate Chip.

For the flower I used the "True Friend" set and for the birthday part I used the "Think Happy Thoughts" set. I also used the corner rounder to make my scallops on the Chocolate Chip card stock strip. I added some 5/8" Chocolate Chip ribbon to the top of that and on top of that I added a piece of Pretty in Pink ribbon. Before I attached it I took my sponge with Chocolate Chip ink on it and ran it across the ribbon to "dirty" it up a bit. Adding it right off the spool was just too bright. Adding the ink to it toned it down and it just blended right in.

I tied a bow of the 5/8" Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon to the top and it pretty much filled up the card. I didn't see any areas that I wanted to add any more to. Well, except for the center of the flower. I had colored it in with Pretty in Pink and added Chocolate Chip dots to it. Once I got it layered I didn't like what I saw so I got out the small round punch and punched out a circle and glued it in place on the center of the flower. It was just enough to "finish" off the card.

Thank you SO much for stopping by,
