Happily Ever After--Sketches! {by Tamara} # 88

It's Thursday so it's time for another Sketches! {by Tamara} challenge. This one is #88. I have trouble with round cards, so this one WAS a challenge for me.

My base card is Whisper White. I ran it through my Cuttlebug with the largest Large Scalloped circle Nestabilities die, leaving a "hinge". I then used a stamp from a Kitchen Sink Stamps set called Never a Loss 4 Words. I needed something long and flexible enough to curve around and this one fit the bill, so, I decided this would be a wedding or anniversary card. I then stamped a wedding cake from an Inkadinkado set called Wedding, added some Prima flowers with crystal brads, and some faceted jewels at each scallop. I then punched a slot at the hinge and tied a pale blue bow through it.

Thanks for looking!

Don't forget to check out the sketch at the Sketches! {by Tamara} blog and give it a try--we'd love to see what you come up with!
