Guest Designer at Sketches by Tamara # 83

Oh wow, my exciting news is that today, I am the Guest Designer over at Sketches by Tamara. Woohoo !!!

I was just so blooming excited when out of the blue I got an email asking f if I would like to be Guest Designer, well I had to think about that for all of a second :)

Anyhoo, I used the latest Sketch 83 for the layout of this card. I never have a sympathy card when I need one so thought it would be a good design to go with these Twelve by 12 Cala Lily papers that I had in  a bargain box from Artymiss. It is quite a large sheet of text with a flower at the bottom. I used 2 of these images and layered one decoupaged flower on top of the other. I have used a clear Sakura glitter pen to highlight the flower and to scribble on the background. 

The crackle paper is from K & Co as is the paper ribbon border. The sentiment is a magazine freebie by Margaret Sherry. he flower is a Prima with a Papermania gem and an Ikandee twist tie. I have a few sheets of these and have only ever used one !

This is a great sketch to work with and I think it will be very useful in the future when you have a large picture or stamped imaged to work with.
