Swirls, Curls & Flowers

I'm telling you, I'm hooked on these challenges. Today over at SCS is sketch challenge day. This card is for SC124 which you can see here. It's a terrific sketch by Roxie, aka Rox71. I just love the unusual lines of this sketch and decided to have some fun with it. The base is SU black c/s. On top of that, I layered some DCWV Posies Glitter Print paper. It's a little heavier and comes with glitter already on it. I had some difficulty in finding a complimentary paper for the triangular shapes, so decided to go with vellum. My DD, Tiffany, recently sent me a package of goodies for Mother's Day. Amongst the goodies was a set of Gel-a-Tins Build Your Own Flourish stamp set and I just had to use it today. I stamped some flourishes on the vellum, using StazOn ink, of course, then added some gold stickles. I think I got a little carried away with the stickles, but "live and learn", I say. I stamped the little flower using SU's Polka Dots & Paisley set and coloured it in with my new Souffle Pens. Love those darn things, don't you? Well, there you have it. My card for SC124!
