Just for You :)

Hi Friends,

Yet another month end reveal for the cardabilities Sketch #112 and my take for DT inspiration is

Sketch #112

Karen Gerber, known for the awesome sketches at Cardabilities and each one of it, is my favorite.
Visit the blog to see my fellow DTs awesome inspirations for the challenge.

And about my card..

Patterned paper is matted on to the base CS and distressed the edges. Wanted to go for muted tones and so this attempt of creating a flower cluster which is much similar to the pp tone.

Gessoed down the central portion of the pp to tone down the pp a bit and on that the flower cluster are placed.  Tessatina border , Medical gauze, Raffia, pollens, along with the Floral spray and the diecut leaves which are distressed with weathered wood.

Few pearls to finish off the card with the sentiment on a banner near the cluster and random splashes of inks.

Hope you like the card.
