Celebrate Each Day

Hello again,
     Today I'm sharing a card I made for Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge. As I said in my last blog I haven't done many sketch challenges in the past, but I have really been enjoying doing them as of late, I think I will be doing them more often. 
     I used one of my bestie's stamps from IO and stamped several flowers and leaves, on Canson     Watercolor Paper with Altenew Permanent Black ink.  Then using my Zig Clean Color pens I water   colored it. When they were dry I fussy cut them out and set them aside to work on the front  panel.     
     Using KS-Stitched Rectangles I cut the front panel, from white #110 Recollections CS, then I used Altenew-Create a Wreath dies to cut the oval. I added a piece of Altenew-Glitter Gold Washi Tape     
1/2" from the bottom of panel and trimmed it off the edge of the oval. Using repositionable tape I       
place the flowers where they would hang over the edge of the oval. Then I placed the front panel over my card front and marked where the flowers and leaves would be, using a pencil. I also drew a light   line around the edge of the oval, so I would know where to place my sentiment. Once this was done   I stamped the sentiment onto the front of my 41/4" x 51/2" #110 Ivory card base. Then I used some 3-M dimensional tape on the panel and adhered it to my card front. I glued the flowers down with Aleen's Tacky glue and also used 3-M tape for the parts hanging over the edge of the oval. I added some sequins and some chunky glitter around the flowers and sentiment and the front is done.
      For those who have been to my blog before, you know I always bring something from the front of the card to the inside. So I added some Glitter Gold washi tape and a flower and leaf to finish.
