Simply Saturday Sketch.

Here is my card for Andrea's Stampin' Moments Simply Saturday Sketch SS200210. I've used the 6 x 6 Design Papers and stamps from Kaisercraft's Lilac Avenue range again, I'm really liking these colours together!


My green background cardstock uses a technique called 'Simple Whitewash' from the Technique Junkies August/September Newsletter, it's a very simple technique and perfect for toning down the very bright lime green cardstock! The background shadow squares behind the flower image is a stamp by Handprint Stamps, I'm not sure if this company still exists anymore though.

I've just added one Kaisercraft rhinestone to the flower centre and a tied scrap of ribbon for embellishments.

I'm not sure what happened to my watermark, it just disappeared while I was editing a photo in Photo Elements, so I've made a new one with a more elegant font this time. Thanks for visiting today, hope everything is well in your part of the world!
