Retrosketches #60

I'm stopping in today with my card for this week's Retrosketches challenge. This week's sketch is based off of this card that I made. This is one of my favorite cards I've ever made, so I was super excited to give it another try and see what I could come up with.

Here is my take:

For this card I flipped the sketch. I wanted my card to have the same feel, but still be different than my original one. I also switched the solid and patterned panels. I love these flowers and I really wanted them to pop, so I stamped them in some fun bright colors. To add a little depth to them, I added a little color with my Copics. Papertrey actually has a stamp set that does this for you now, but I like to do it with my Copics.

Here you can see that I attached the green panel with foam tape and the flowers with my dots. I know..no surprise there. One of these days I'm going to do a card with no dimension and surprise all of you...haha.

Here is this week's sketch. I have to say that it's so neat to see one of your cards put into a sketch.
I hope you can join us this week. I would love to see what you create with this sketch.

  1. Wow! This is gorgeous! Love the bright colours against the green.

  2. Gorgeous, Deanna! I love your use of patterned paper, so bold! :-)

  3. This is gorgeous. Your flowers look amazing.

  4. Deanna this is just gorgeous. I honestly feel that accenting the Rosie Posie stamps with Copics is a much lovelier effect than the new stamp set. So much softer. Beautiful.

  5. This is such a beautiful card. I loved the original, and love this one, too. I am so happy that you are the retro sketch this week. You are one of my biggest inspiration, and I just love to case your work--this week, I have 'official permission', too. And, I am also addicted to your dots--just the perfect height for that little something extra.

  6. Fabulous card, and a great sketch, Deanna! Hope I can play this week :o)

  7. Absolutely gorgeous! Adore the colors!!!!!

  8. Such a gorgeous card! I love the flowers and the pretty striped paper...so lovely!

  9. Deanna, your cards are always so beautiful...

  10. Your original is fantastic and so is this one! Love the sketch for this week and that you are joining us! :)
