Inspirational Card Sketches DT call

I just noticed yesterday that there was a Dt call for Inspirational Card Sketches and I thought I'd give it a try!
I've used the "Orchid" stamp from my newly released A Passion for Stamps range and you can find the details in my sidebar.
I coloured it with Promarkers and used Glossy accents to highlight the stripe on the plant pot.
The papers are Core d'inations (Cuttlebugged) and Jesse Edwards Boutique. The beautiful turquoise flower and the pin were sent to me by Tara and the gems are from my stash.
I've used the Martha Stewart doily border punch on the corners of the image again as I love the lacy effect.

See you later with some great news!!.....

  2. The colours work so beautifully Ruth and your image looks amazing, especially edged like that with the MS punch, gorgeous!
    So you've read your email then? I have to say I had no part in the choosing because it's G's baby, but I was delighted when I saw the outcome ;o)
    Thanks so much for the card I received from you this morning, such a lovely pick me up and so pretty too - bless you!
    Hugs Tara xx

  4. Hi Ruth,
