Limelight Papercrafts Sketch Card


This card is for Mandy's sketch at Limelight Papercrafts. The tricky part was the requirement to use textured items. I immediately thought of some Paper Bouquet paper I bought a year ago at Target. I came flocked already. It is like velvet flock. It is so soft. That got me thinking about other textures. I pulled out soft, satiny ribbon and DCWV glitter cardstock. The glitter CS is really rough, so I think it should count as a texture. I used my Giga scallop circle punch and Mega circle for the focal point. The heart stamp is by Studio G and so is the sentiment. The flower on the textured white piece is from an SU! set. After adding some crystals and Diamond stickles, I adhered my creation to the black base. I'm pretty happy with it. I hope you enjoy it as well.
