TAMARA'S SKETCH CHALLENGE

Okay ladies, it's that time of the week again where we get to take a peek at another fabulous sketch from Tamara!! When I first got the sketch, I kept looking at it and had no idea what I was going to do. Well, after several false starts, lots of wasted snail, and a few poor abused pieces of paper, this is what I came up with - and I actually like it!! I am in love with this stamp set and was excited to receive it at Convention because I don't think I would have bought it on my own, and wow! I would have missed out! It's called Inspired by Nature and it is a beautiful stamp all on its own! So, here is my take this week - make sure you hop on over to Tamara's site and check out what the rest of the DT did! And, why not give it a shot yourself? Just upload your link to the site so we can all come and check it out!! I have lots of DT stuff to catch up on today and another workshop to prepare for so I will be in my studio all day - whoohoo!! I like this kind of work *wink* I will leave you with the recipe for this card, and then I am off to catch up on your wonderful blogs before I roll my sleeves up and get to workin'!
Card Recipe:
Paper - Regal Rose, So saffron, Whisper White card stock
Inks - Regal Rose, So Saffron, Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers
Stamps - Inspired by Nature
Accessories - Regal Rose narrow grosgrain ribbon, Old Olive brads, Corner Ticket Punch, mini glue dots, liquid glue, dazzling diamonds, (flowers cut using the Big Shot Birds and Blooms Die)
