WMS Sketch 100

Hope you had a great weekend! Once again, I haven't blogged in a while...it's just hard to find the time! I knew I had to play along with the 100th WMS Sketch challenge, and that I had to use French Country.


I heat embossed the background panel onto Winter Wisteria cardstock using clear detail powder. All the stamped images are from French Country, and I used Royal Velvet, New Leaf and Winteria Wisteria inks.

Still not sure I like the little resin flowers just there, but I'm happy enough :)

Thanks for taking a look!

Oh so pretty, Melissa! I just love the colors and the sweet little floral paper you created. That fancy French County is luscious in lavender :) The resin flowers are the perfect embellishment. Happy 100th sketch! So glad you could play this week!
