Painted Harvest Sketch for PP416

It’s Sunday and time for another weekly challenge over at The Paper Players. This week I am hosting and I have a SKETCH Challenge, which are my favorite challenges. They are a great starting point to get the creativity flowing. When I came up with this layout, I thought it would be fun to showcase different patterns of Designer Series Paper, so that’s what my plan was when I created my card. 
Y’all know I love LOTS of layers, but you can use as few or as many layers as you’d like on your project. You can also flip the sketch or turn it on it’s side…have some fun with it!
 I can’t wait to see what you come up with. 
I just love the Frosted Floral Designer Series paper. It has a really pretty pearlized finish on it which makes it extra fancy. I actually do not have the coordinating stamp set (yet) that coordinates with this paper, so I used a sentiment from the Painted Harvest stamp set for the card. I really like the font on the sentiment, don’t you. It’s tough to see in the photo, but I stamped it on Shimmer White Cardstock to go with the shimmer in the DSP. I also added some texture with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder and finally opened up the Frosted Epoxy Droplets as a finishing touch. They are SO pretty! 

 Card Measurements: 

  • Gray Granite Card Base - 4-1/4” x 11”, scored at 5-1/2”
  • Soft Suede Cardstock - 4” x 5-1/4”
  • Tranquil Tide Cardstock - 3-7/8” x 5-1/8” 
  • Gray Granite Cardstock (behind DSP) - 2-7/8” x 4-5/8” and 1-7/8” x 4-1/8” 
  • Frosted Floral DSP - 2-3/4” x 4-1/2”  and 1-3/4” x 4"

Finally, a quick shot of the inside of the card. I used a little more of the DSP along with some floral images from the Love What You Do stamp set.
