Stamping 411 sketch meets Beyond The Garden DSP


What a great sketch from Stamping 411 this week!  It was so easy to put together this card, but yet in the end, I loved the result.  The one thing I did that I would change is heating the paper and ribbon after I spritzed it with vanilla shimmer smooch.  I could not wait for it to dry and it kind of melted the ends of the ribbon.  But I don't think anyone would notice that but me and of course now you since I have told you what happened. LOL

Anyway, this paper "Beyond the Garden" by Stampin' Up! is such a great paper and I wanted a card that would highlight the paper.  So this sketch seemed to do just that!  The little rosettes do help though and I just love them.  I will actually be showing my SU workshop how to make them on Thursday evening!

Here is a close up of the rosettes and sentiment!  Here is a great video on how to make these darling flowers!


The pearls seemed to add just the right mixture to the sentiment.

Here is another front view of the card!


You can even see a little of the shimmer that covers the whole card with this view!
