The Deconstructed Sketch 66...

I've had my eye on  this sketch site  for a while now, and kept meaning to play along with the fun sketches, but something or other seemed to get in the way...until today.  I sat down and decided that today I was going to play with this week's sketch, and not stop until it was finished. And that's what I did.

Of course, it didn't hurt that I'd picked up a few new paper pads this past week, one of which is Graphic 45's new A Lady's Diary...filled with softly colored and beautiful patterns for inspiration.  So here's an all occasion card that combines the two...


I used one of my favorite shabby fabric roses again, and this time topped it with a piece of tea-dyed and gathered cotton lace, 3 baby rosebuds, and a cluster of pearls...


The scalloped crocheted lace was also tea-dyed, and little baby pearls were added to the centers of the lace flowers...

Supplies:
Patterned papers: Graphic 45 A Lady's Diary collection      Rose buds: ViolaMahr on Etsy
Dies: Spellbinders Parisian Motifs; My Favorite Things Royal Leaves
Scalloped lace: The Funkie Junkie on Zibbet      Shabby fabric rose: Frogfeathers on Etsy
Pearls: Recollections     Miscellaneous: craft store cotton lace; handcrafted pearl wire spiral

And here's The Deconstructed Sketch #66 that the card is based on...I stuck pretty close to the sketch design with this one...


Thanks so much for visiting ...hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
