Friday Sketch 22

Here is this weeks sketch from the Friday Sketchers Challenge Blog.

This is my take and I'm not sure I'm completely happy with it, I've spent a lot of time fiddling with it and searching for the right colours! I can't decide whether I prefer it with or without the ribbons underneath. In fact I am so unsure about it, I haven't actually stuck the ribbons down yet, that's why it all looks a bit off centre.

I used an A6 ivory card blank. The orange flowery paper is Heidi Grace - It's My Party Flowers. It has a wonderful shimmer glitter effect and I just love the orange colour and tiny flowers. The green buttons in each corner are from S.E.I. - Chick-a-doo range. The orange and green ribbons are both taken from Making Memories - Abby - Cheeky Trims.

The word 'baby' is made up of American Craft - Thickers and the chipboard letters were originally white. I coloured them in with Marvy Matchables - Wet Looks Embossing Marker No. 9. I then sprinkled them with clear embossing powder and heated them up. I repeated this process again to give it a deep glossy look. I then layered the letters on to Doodlebug cardstock in pale orange and then again on to a pink Bazzill cardstock. The mini green brads are from Making Memories - Springtime Button.
