Friday Sketchers 51

This weeks Friday Sketchers challenge is a sketch with quite a lot of layers, well for me anyway, but that's why it's called a challenge is'nt it ?

Unusually frugal, I have used some DP's that came free in a magazine which carried some of my artwork. The image is GR1353 DD from Hobby Arts, stamped with versamark and embossed with Moonglow razzelberry plum and cut on the cuttlebus using nesties. This is a lovely sentiment that I often use in class and there's always a list of orders for it afterwards.

The horizontal 'mat' is a border scroll cut on cricut storybook as are the hibiscus flowers across the bottom. I had added some florist stamens and liquid pearls to the centres.

Hi Brenda

What a beautiful creation - and a beautiful sentiment too. (Very true as well).

I don't go for multi layers or mega embellishments either but must admit that when I do it as part of a challenge I am often surprised with the end result.

I see that Sir Stampalot is going to be sponsoring the Allsorts Challenge Blog. Emma and Kirsten must be really excited about that.

Have a great weekend Brenda.

Love Jules xx
