one sheet wonder

I had a look at the challenge on Just Add Ink this week and it was a great sketch challenge. I decided to make a one sheet wonder using one of my new sets Awash with Flowers and use that on my challenge card.
Picture 339
Instead of ribbon, as in the sketch, I used my scallop edge punch to create a “ribbon-like” accent and used the new Stampin’ Up! pearls on the scallops and also on the flower centres. They really added that “special something” to the card.
I also tried out the new blue, Marina Mist, and it is a really lovely colour.
I am going to make a series of cards using the rest of the one sheet wonder to give to my daughter’s violin teacher and accompanist. The Clarence Eisteddfod is on very soon and I always like to give them a little present for their help when music exams and eisteddfods are on.  Hopefully they will like them. I will show you the other cards I come up with during the week.
Ingredients :
Stamps : Awash with flowers, Occasional greetings
Ink : Early espresso, Marina mist, regal rose, pip, bashful blue, wasabi
Card : early espresso, whisper white
Other : Scallop edge border punch, pearls
