Pretty Patterns 03

Welcome to week three of the all new sketch challenge over at  the My Time Made Easy blog.  I decided to do the emboss resist technique for this weeks card!  I just love Graphic 45 papers (these inparticular) they work so well with this technique for me.  I picked up these really cool vintage buttons at my local scrapping store on Saturday and that's kinda how my card came together.  I just love going to this store because I always come back inspired and feeling very crafty!!!  Next Wednesday I'm going to a card class to make some really neat flowers with some sort of material  I've never heard of before.  I will share them with you ladies next week!  O.K. Sorry I got a little off track!  LOL!!!   Lets get back to my card...I used Rangers Enchanted Gold embossing powder to emboss with.  I didn't realize it had sparkles in it... so cool!!!  I must say it looks amazing in person! 

I inked up the flowers with Spun Sugar and the edges with Antique Linen then I used a Q-tip to add a little Shabby Shutters to the leaves.

Supplies; Ranger Distress Inks-antique linen, spun sugar, shabby shutters,Enchanted Gold embossing powder, Graphic 45-Baby 2 Bride Collection,Once Upon a Springtime Collection, Dress it Up-Buttons, Ribbon-misc. Stamps-MTME-Monograms Defined, Bold Botanicals, Background stamp-Nature Textures-Curious by Design
