Today's card is for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. Another great one, Mercy! The sketch is here, and here is my card.
This card turned out so soft and dainty! The background is the knitted pattern from Faux Fun. I really love it. It adds just the perfect amount of something, if you know what I mean. The lacy bit is the broderie anglaise border from the same set, stamped onto Kraft cardstock and then embossed in white. I used a corner rounder to create the scallops along the bottom. I was really pleased with the way that this pattern looked when embossed, very pretty.
The hearts and sentiment are from Sweethearts. The flower in the center of the hearts is from Faux Fun, an easy way to tie it all together. I colored the pearls with my copics and added some Antique Linen Distress Ink to everything.
Faux Fun is certainly a new favorite of mine!
A few notes before I sign off, this card of mine was chosen by Nichole Heady as one of January's Guest Star Stamper winners! What a fab surprise!
And if you have a few minutes, it would be great if you could pop over to Bill's blog. He has a few recent posts, and he's asking for some photo critiques. I'm sure he would love some feedback if you have the time!
