Sketch Frenzy Friday 070111

Friday! Man the weeks go fast, don't they??? And it's July too! Yikes, the year is half over!!

Friday means another Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch challenge and mini blog hop! In addition to SFF, I will also be posting this card over at SU Only Creations for their anniversary theme. We just marked 20 years with a June Anniversary so it seems appropriate!! Here is my card

based on this sketch by Robbie Rubala

I went Purple! My intent wasn't to be quite so purple, but I like it! Not near enough purple in my world!! My original goal was to use some of the new In Colors. I got a little Wisteria Wonder in there :)

My card base is Elegant Eggplant with a background layer also Elegant Eggplant. The double layer is to allow the ribbon to be tied without showing inside the card! On the background layer I stamped the scallop flower from Flower Fest in Versamark. The White satin ribbon is knotted on the left side. There are two accent layers behind the focal image. The first is Wisteria Wonder stamped with the rose flower from Flower Fest in Whisper White. The second is Whisper White stamped with the 5 petal flower in Elegant Eggplant. Happy Anniversary is in Whisper White in the bottom right corner. Next, the focal image flower. I stamped the scallop flower 4 times in Versamark on Wisteria Wonder and embossed with White Embossing Powder. I cut out each layer of the flower and then added Elegant Eggplant ink at the center. Need to play a little more with this! Love the flower, just not sure it goes with the card. Anyway, the "layers" of the flower are attached together with dimensionals.
