Skipping Stones Design - SSD67 - Guest Sketch Artist week 2

Good morning! Today, is my second week as Guest Sketch Artist for Skipping Stones Design and I am very excited to share my second card and sketch with you. Here is the card I designed for this weeks sketch. I used Dandelion Dreams for the cluster of soft pastel flowers and Pumkin Seed Sentiments to create the background at the bottom of the card and add the sentiment. Here is the sketch that I designed. Sketch SSD#67 for Skipping Stones Design.Here is a close up of the floral images. I used Simply Smooth Ivory cardstock, the Grand Calibur™ and S4-319 Lattice Rectangles #3 to cut/emboss the rectangle shape. Then I stamped the floral images using Spun Sugar, Shabby Shutters and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks from Ranger. Then I inked the outer edges of the lattice with Spun Sugar Distress Ink, added glitter and very lightly inked the edges with Rich Cocoa ink. I used the Grand Calibur™ and S4-306 Wonky Rectangles #5 and S5-046 Banner Basics Three to create a label and border. Then I distressed the edges of the background and added a few rhinestones.
