Friendship's Camellia

This card is for Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #3. This was a fun sketch--I think I'll be using it again!

My base card is Very Vanilla with layers of Basic Gray, Bashful Blue, and DP from the Lotus Mat Pack by K & Co. The next element is Basic Gray, Kiwi Kiss, and more DP from the pack. A strip of Kiwi Kiss striped ribbon and a button from my stash tied on with DMC embroidery floss fulfills that part of the sketch. The focal image is from Gina K. Designs' Friendship's Garden set and was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on Very Vanilla card stock and colored with a Kiwi Kiss reinker and Copic markers # WO and W1. I stamped the camellia four times and layered it with 3M foam squares for dimension. Then it was matted with Kiwi Kiss and Basic Gray and popped up on more foam squares. Three smaller buttons tied on with floss finish off the sketch.

I'm glad you dropped in today!
