Freshly Made Sketches #180 Take Two

This is the second card today for one of my favourite challenges, Freshly Made Sketches #180 A Sketch By Jen T

This is the sketch
Although I said that this sketch had me flummoxed to start with, I quite quickly came up with my second one for this sketch . . . and this is the result.

This one is very different from my usual kind of style, it's a little more 'fussy'.  
I started off with a cream panel, cut a circle of white and dry embossed it and adhered it to the base card.  
Then I added a watercolour piece that I had made a  a couple of days ago and had dry embossed that also.

Next, I wrapped a piece of lace ribbon around the join and tied it in a double loop bow.  I finished it all off with a sentiment on a punched out shape and added a few pearls.

I promise this all for today, thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful, wonderful Easter!  Hazel xx


  1. I love it Hazel. Your embossed pieces look very beautiful as does the yellowy colour. Nice.
