Friday Sketchers Challenge 51

Hi ladies, this is going to be a bit of a long post with quite a few you have been warned!!!!!

Friday Sketchers are celebrating their one year anniversary and there are loads of fabulous prizes on offer this week.

As usual, there is another brilliant sketch to follow and I have made this card and gift tag set for the challenge. Hopefully, when I eventually get around to it, these will go into my etsy shop!

I have used a blue card base, instead of my usual white for this one and the papers are from DCWV.

I have used the lovely Willow with Flower Basket stamp from Whiff of Joy and she is coloured with distress inks.

The sentiment is also from WOJ - the general sayings set, the flowers are primas, spacers and charm I got from ebay and the pearl brads are from papermania.

The embossed panel has been done with my stylized flowers folder, to keep the flower theme going - although most of it is hidden behind my image!!!

The inside has been decorated to compliment the front.

I have used my fiskars threading water punch to scallop the edges of the centre panel and the bottom edge of the area to write the greeting. I just love this punch, it is so versatile and easy to use!

I also made a matching gift tag from the left over pieces of DP. I used my scalloped circle nesties to cut part of the image and once again my fiskars punch for the border of the centre panel and a piece of white satin ribbon. I finished off with a small, blue jewel in the bottom corner.

For a little extra touch, I also decorated the envelope!

I have added a close up for my final image below..... if you are still with me that is!!!
