Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #50

Sunday, 1 June 2008
I've been looking at Beate's blog for a while now but never been brave enough to attempt one of her weekend sketch challenges, until today! I liked the look of this sketch and the samples that had been provided are amazing.

My card isn't in the same league as the others that I've seen, it's very simple. I'm not sure if it's missing something, but have decided against adding anything extra. It's also the first time I've made an A5 card.
This is the first time I've used the Hook, Line and Sinker Penny Black stamp. I've watercoloured the image and added some stickles on the water ripples. The white shimmer card has been embossed using the Swiss Dots folder and layered onto some purple cs. I've added some organza ribbon and a Prima flower to embellish the card.
I hope it is okay. Thank you for looking.

    Hey Sarah, there is nothing wrong with your card. It looks just fine. It may be the sketch. The horizontal strip goes too far. Nice coloring.
