2 Sketches 4 You Challenge

The sketch this week on 2 Sketches 4 You has been set by Laura and as always gorgeous cards from Laura and the Design Team.  This had to be a bit of a quickie one this week...made last night burning the midnight oil and oh dear why are those Blue Awning papers from K & Co so difficult to capture in a photo....of course, the bling and the sparkle on the ribbon didn't help either.. spent longer this morning trying to get the piccie than I did making the card.
The image was stamped twice....first with Brilliance Mediterranean Blue..dried with the heat gun and then overstamped with Versamark and Embossed with Gold adding gems to the centres.  Edged both panels with Gold Krylon Pen.

Papers: K & Co - Blue Awning Collection
Stamp: Stampendous - Agapanthus Cluster
Sentiment: & Gems: K & Co Blue Awning Collection
Ribbon: from my stash
