Tonight's card combines three challenges. The sketch is #140 from Operation Write Home. The StampTV Free-for-all-Friday challenge is to use flowers. And the challenge at Joan's Gardens is to use a piece of designer paper for the background, include a dimensional flower, a flourish, and a sentiment.
The paper is from my stash - something I bought at Jo-ann's Fabric & Crafts a few years ago. The narrow striped paper is from a 6x6 pack by Stampin' Up!, and the flourish is from a Stampin' Up! jumbo wheel. The flourish is embossed in a sparkly green powder I've had (and used a lot) for at least a decade. The dimensional flower was hand-made from a satin ribbon and a heat gun. The sentiment I've also had for years, and don't know who made it. The card just didn't look finished yet, so I tried the 'hand-drawn lines' like Darlene DeVries does, but I'm not very good at it. I fixed a goof by covering the outer section of the lined area with a blue Permapaque marker by Sakura.
