Blogger's Challenge - sketch challenge

Today's Blogger's Challenge was to create a card using the sketch on the right for inspiration. A very easy sketch, really. My interpretation is above. I chose to be very literal with this one!

My card uses the Glassy Embossing Technique from the February 2010 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter for the floral designer paper portion. It's too bad that you cannot see the embossing very well in the scan -- it is really pretty in real life! The images used are Glamour Girls from the Time to Stamp Collection at I Brake for Stamps (use code TJ10 for 10% off, junkies!). The gorgeous striped lustre cardstock is from the Paper Temptress.

A list of the other Blogger's Challenge players can be found here.  Enjoy!
