Another sketch from Lesley, creator of Freshly Made Sketches, my that gal sure is busy!
I used Lesley's sketch just tweaking it a bit. I wanted the oval focal point to be something eye-catching and I think this oldie but goody stamp set was just the ticket!
It was one of the first two-step inking processes that my daughter Nance Leedy of Canopy Crafts first introduced to me. Then of course I had to have this stamp set which she was able to find on the web and buy for me, it's still one of my favorites.
Here's a close up of the main image showing the ittsy-bittsy pearls matching the larger pearls in the upper right hand corner. As one of the design team member says "you can never have too many pearls"! H'mm maybe I should have completely covered the center of the flower.
I also embossed the top portion of the card base to coordinate with the two striped designer papers.
Paper: SU Card Stock & DSP Pool Party, Whisper White, Midnight Muse, Gumball Green

I guess that's just about it. I'd love to hear what you think about
