This card is going into three challenges this morning.
First up, the sketch, provided by the lovely ladies at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturday Challenge:
Next up, the theme of Thanksgiving, or Gratitude at Crafty Creations. We don't do Thanksgiving here in the UK, so I opted for Thank You instead, hope that's OK guys??
And then at Sophisticat, there is a colour theme of Pink, Brown and a Flower, and it's my first time entering a challenge here.
After racking my brains and trudging through all my images on file, I opted for a Rose image that I had sketched last year but hadn't scanned to my compy yet (what a divv!).
Thus, duly scanned in and twiddled with in photoshop, I made it a pink one to go with the colour theme, and made it a biggy too! I layered it up with some large foam pads, and gave the petals a bit of a twirl for extra effect, and popped a wee gem on one for some sparkle.
Hope it doesn't obliterate the sketch layout too much. . . Ah, well - whatever! I shall load this one up to my blog shop Delicious Doodles in a day or two, along with some more Christmas images I am working on.
I used some scrummy papers from Raspberry Road Designs named Mocha Love. I took a bit of a liberty with the ribbon bit on the sketch, as I wanted to use a gorgeous felt flower trim I found at the local craft shop, which happened to be pink! Dead handy!
So there you have it, job done. Now for some lunch!!
