This week brought another great sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
I knew I wanted to create my main shape by using the void technique with the embossing folders, but I'm not sure that I quite accomplished what I was trying to accomplish with this card. I even embossed the edge of the main image panel, thinking that might be the extra something it was missing, but I don't think it quite did the trick. And the cluster of shapes on the left stumped me, too. First I had some gold embossed trees from an old Hostess Set, Patterned Pines, but they seemed too big. When I thought to cut out the Petals-A-Plenty flowers, I was really patting myself on the back, thinking that would be the trick, but I'm still not so sure. At any rate, I'll let you judge the card. Here it is...
