CPS 171 - English Bouquet

I have been a HUGE fan of the CPS - Card Sketches blog since I started making cards a few months ago.

However, being the biggest procrastinator that I am :), it is not until now that I decided to play along with their weekly card sketch challenge. So here goes!!

This week's challenge is CPS 171, sponsored by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. Here's a peek of the sketch:

And here's my creation today:

I used a cardstock that I actually bought for father's day cards that I planned to make before I went to Europe, but that plan never rolled out in the end ^_^. Hence, I was left with a few masculine-themed cardstock and papers, but it turned out that this grayish-blue color worked well with the topper.

In case you are wondering, the topper that I used is from my English Bouquet Digital Paper Pack Set that I sell on Etsy. It's not listed as yet since I haven't finished designing the entire range, LOL. But you'll be able to view (and maybe buy a set ;D) them in a week's time or so. Follow February Lane on Twitter if you'd like to know when it's listed :).

The three diamond-shaped embellishments were made from hand-cut jute fabric, which is perhaps officially my 'signature' material by now, LOL. The rose was one of my hand-made 'scout' roses (I call them 'scout roses' because I learned how to make them when I was in the scouts :D), made using crimson and moss-green satin ribbons. The sentiment was printed on recycled paper.

That's all for tonight, I will come back again next week with new posts!

Much love,
