Autumn Sketch

My sister-in-law’s birthday is next week and I needed to make a card. I almost always start with a sketch – and this one I used a retro sketch (rs36). Then I selected my pattern paper – an old one from Stampin’Up. Then I selected my flower image (by Papertrey Ink).

The flower is stamped 3 times on More Mustard card stock and then colored using Copics (YR65, E08, E19). I only colored the parts that would be showing – so the bottom layer only has the outer most petals colored. As a final touch I added some gold Spica glitter pen to the top two flower layers.

This card was created using the Retro Sketch challenge (rs36).

Thanks for stopping by!
