I started this card with no particular direction in mind other than I needed a sympathy card. I couldn’t find the stamp set I was looking for and happened upon my SU! lotus blossom stamp set and then came across the sentiment I wanted to use.
I stamped the lotus image in SU! daffodil delight and crushed curry on white. I added the sentiment from the SU! simply sketched stamp set. Then I stopped because I didn’t know what to do with this. So I decided I would see what the sketch was for Sweet Sunday Sketch. I thought what I had stamped so far could work for this sketch, so I went for it.
I added a piece of SU! lost lagoon under the white cardstock to make it pop against the white doily. But I didn’t want the lagoon to surround all the white, just the top and bottom. I added the flag as per the sketch and then the doily – which takes a bit more liberty than the half circle the sketch shows.
Then the debate started – to add pearls or to not add pearls. I went back and forth for quite a while. I put pearls on and then took them off. I set the card aside and came back to it. Finally, I decided without looked so much better. The pearls added too much to this card – which stands very well on its own.
Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to pop in tomorrow!!
