Freshly Made Sketches #185 - Take Two

My card for today is my second card for the Freshly Made Sketches #185 - A Sketch by Cindy H  challenge, and here it is.

This is Cindy's sketch.

First, I dry embossed my card panel with  a wood-grain folder.  Next, I sponged my focal panel with some lilac ink in a 'slight' ombre effect.  Then I used Paper Smooches, Scripty Sayings to stamp my sentiment and added a small, layered flower and flourish to the corner.

I finished, by cutting two flags from different patterned papers and mounted the sponged panel on top of the banners and mounted the whole thing to my embossed panel.

Finally, I mounted that on to a black card base.  Here are the rest of the pictures.

As always, thank you so much for making my day with your visits and for all your comments, you are all appreciated more than you can know!  I hope you all are having a lovely weekend.  Hazel xx
