retrosketches #13

I'm here today with my card for this weeks retrosketches challenge. This weeks sketch had my mind working. I don't usually put anything at an angel so this was a stretch for me..haha. I can't even count the number of ideas I had that I couldn't get to look right. But I was determined to create something and I finally came up with this card.

How that I look at it I realize that this is the theme of my daughter's upcoming wedding next summer. She is doing purple and green with burlap and lace and her flowers are going to be hydrangeas. That's why I got this stamp set..we're going to be making her invitations and thank you cards and I thought this set was perfect. Once we get them designed I'll be posting them so be sure the watch for that.

I fussy cut the flower and leaves. And you know me...always have to add some dimension. The tag is attached with foam tap and the flower with my dots.

Here is this weeks sketch.
Thanks for stopping by.
