It's time for the sketch challenge of the month & as we're so near to Mother's Day what better focus for our design this week. I have used one of my favourite Stampendous clear sets & quite an old one now but I often find myself reaching for it for all manner of reasons. As you can see it has some lovely wording plus a whole host of little elements to use for many occasions.

I began by embossing the strip at the bottom of the sketch with white embossing powder & then sponging with the Misty Meadow set before layering onto lilac card. I have used the flower corner at the top left hand corner of the set to stamp by turning it alternately to form a border. I also sponged around the edges of the card blank in soft green. The sentiment has been stamped onto a die cut oval using the Brilliance pad & then layered onto a lilac die cut piece. For this simple design simply add some Liquid Pearls & a die cut swirl to embellish

Here's a closer look at the flower border

Here's the original sketch why not play along. As always you can see my design on display at Japonica along with past weeks designs too. Why not pop in & take a closer look!


  1. Pretty! Very very useful sketch, love your added leaf embellishment.
