It's sketch challenge time again & I have stepped away from Christmas this week. As we are so close to Remembrance day & with young lives still being lost In Afghanistan almost daily I just needed to do this card. I have used an older stamp from Stampendous but it's stunningly simple & still available as a cling stamp. The main image has been printed with Versafine & embossed with clear powder. I have then water coloured using the Sakura pens. As you will see I have printed again onto the white layer & at the top of the red layer. The wording at the bottom of the white layer has been achieved using the Francoise Alphabet. I have simply added the polka dot ribbon & finished with the red & black pearls. 

Here's the original sketch so why not play along! Pop into Japonica to see my take on the sketch.
