Hello {SSSC205}

Hi there! It's Sunday and time for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch! Karen has a very simple and straight forward sketch for us to play with this week, so I hope you get a chance to play along.

I just finished the Online Card Classes: Stenciled class and felt inspired to use a stencil on my card today. I settled on the Moroccan Tiles Stencil from MFT and paired it with modeling paste. I love how much texture and dimension this adds to a card. The modeling paste is white, but looks tonal against the Grout Gray card stock. I used the Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose to make the flower. It was stamped with one of the stamps from Art Expression Text before assembling. The sentiment is from Sweet Roses and was cut with the Fishtail Flags STAX. Layered beneath the rose is the Leaf-Filled Flourish and a Mini Delicate Doily cut from vellum. When the main panel was assembled, I gave it a spritz of Shine spray before adhering the pearls.

Here is the card:




Here is this week's sketch:

Thanks for stopping by!
