Today I have a card that I made for the Retro Sketches challenge. I have had it in my mind to do a card with three square across...and then I saw this challenge...SORRY it's WATERMELONS again...I have honestly had this in my mind for quite awhile so this sketch challenge is PERFECT!
Here is the sketch and a link to http://retrosketches.blogspot.com/
Isn't it a great sketch? Here is my card! Hope you LOVE it!!!
This view really shows off the sentiment and the details. I first adhered a piece of 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon to the card (just the designer paper and Whisper Whited cardstock), then I added a piece of Natural 5/8" Chevron Ribbon, tied a double bow around it with Linen Thread. It gives it a real EARTHLY look...kinda SHABBY CHIC...minus the lace...dang it...I could have added some Venetian Crochet Trim....if only my order was here already! I added some curled strips of paper under a button and tied a bow in the button with Bakers Twine. I added the candy dots to hide a spot of black that appeared out of nowhere! ONLY ONE BLACK DOT...but I had to make the candy dots look right! I LOVE HOW IT TURNED OUT!
Let this be a lesson to you!!!
THERE ARE NO MISTAKES.....
ONLY OPPORTUNITIES TO EMBELLISH!!!
