Tsunami Rose Designs Challenge #15 - Sketch Challenge

I have been so ill! I honestly cant remember the last time I felt this bad but the show must go on and here is my second DT Project for Tsunami Rose Designs! This week's challenge is a Sketch Challenge based on this sketch and using the Tsunami Rose 'Ephemeral Love Affair' paper pack available here.

I managed to finally get hold of a set of Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Sizzix Alterations dies and decided to try them out for this challenge using them on the beautiful pink distressed damask paper from this pack. I cut some hessian/burlap too and layered up the flower with a gem in the centre and a scalloped circle underneath.

It might be hard to believe, but in all my stash, I could not find a single butterfly!!! So, a smaller tattered flower was adhered at the bottom of the card too instead. I have stamped a sentiment directly onto the paper.

And to finish, some antique distressed seam binding ribbon in a double bow at the top. I ran some vintage photo distress ink round the edges of the flower layers just to give some added dimension as well. 

Well, here's hoping I will be back to normal soon, I have so much to do including wedding invitations for my friend's impending nuptials - I really ought to get them done or that might be a very quiet day!

Why not join us for this week's Wednesday Challenge - there's no need to use Tsunami Rose Designs but we love to see what you do with them!
