Watercolor Trio Wednesday Sketch Challenge

This is the card I made for this weeks Sketch Challenge over at SplitCoastStampers. I almost didn't do the sketch because I'm not a big fan of square cards. But I stuck with it and this is what I came up with.

The base of my card is Basic Black card stock. The dotted colored paper is from "The Write Stuff" decorative paper pack. There is a sliver of Rose Red card stock showing behind the flower image panel.

The image is from the Stampin' Up! "Watercolor Trio" set. I LOVE that set! The words are from the "Holiday Blitz" set. Such a fun set with LOTS of little stamps in it. It is retiring, which is too bad because I LOVE that set! And what was great about this is the words fit in the punches so I was able to just stamp, punch and tape! Gotta LOVE that!!!

I colored in my flower using markers. That technique is called Direct to Rubber. It's one I use a lot. It's nice that techniques don't retire!!

I tied a black grosgrain ribbon at the top of the card before I taped it all together.

I don't think I will be making any more of this sketch though I may try it on a regular size card. Maybe!!

If you have time try this out. Try it out on a regular size card and show me! Email me your card here.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Very attractive card, Wanda. I don't care to make square cards either, but they always look nice. Your coloring is fantastic, as always.

Thanks for sharing.

Wanda, I am not much into square cards either. However, I did pick up some at HL last week and have played around with a few.

Love your creation!
