2 Sketches 4 You

The sketch this week on 2 Sketches 4 You has been set by Laura....I so love this sketch challenge that I fear I may be addicted...me and a hundred and odd other folks...love looking at everybody's creations and it's great inspiration.















I decided to do a more traditional style card but went completely wild with the flower... stamped 4 times onto the Laura Ashley paper with Versamark and embossed with Black. Cut each flower out and then ripped, distressed and tattered the edges before layering them.....do like this effect so you may see more of it. It felt strange working with black and gold today when the sun has got his hat on again.
