Saturday Scribbles

This week at CAS Colours & Sketches it's a sketch and as I needed to make a wedding anniversary card for my oldest son it was perfect.

I shrank the sketch right down, but kept the same orientation and shapes apart from the flower instead of a circle.

I die cut both the tags and ran the larger one through my cuttlebug to emboss the surface to create texture. I shortened the diagonal stripe stamp by masking off part of the base card.

I fussy cut both the rose and the leaves and placed the leaves flat, but the rose was mounted onto pads. The sentiment was printed on the computer before the tag was cut.  The colours were chosen to reflect their wedding day.

Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Sweet Rose, Diagonal stripes
Inks: Memento, rich cocoa, peanut brittle, toffee crunch
Dies: Clearly Besotted, Tag Along, Journal It
Embossing: Cuttlebug, Swiss dots

So pleased you dropped by my blog today, thanks for your time. Enjoy your weekend.
