Simple things...Sketches! {by Tamara} #89

Time for another Sketches! {by Tamara} challenge! Here's this week's sketch:

I had in mind what I wanted to do, but I had to flip the sketch to do it. My base card is Whisper White with layers of Yoyo Yellow and DP from the Offbeat 6 x 6 pad by Basic Grey, and has an orange satin ribbon wrapped around. The focal image is using the March stamp from Flowers of the Month (retired from SU!)--Jonquil. It was stamped on Gina K. Pure Luxury 80 lb paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers (see below). It was cut/embossed with a square Nestabilities die and edged with a gold paint pen. I then layered it on Only Orange and Old Olive and popped it up on 3M foam squares. The sentiment is also a very focal part of this card. It's from Flourishes' newest releases and is called Timeless Quotes. It was stamped on Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink twice. One copy--and the Yoyo Yellow mat--was cut/embossed with oval Nestabilities dies and matted on Old Olive cut/embossed with a Labels Four die. I used the second copy to cut out the uppercase words and pop them up on foam squares. Then the whole thing is up on foam squares. Some Dew Drops finish off the corners and that's that!

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!
