Floral Encouragement Card

Good afternoon! It's been awhile since I've played along with a ColourQ challenge but when I saw the colours this week, I knew I had to participate. I'm not really a fan of pink, but I really like a pink and brown colour scheme. The layout for this Floral Encouragement Card comes from Tuesday Morning Sketches and it was designed by Laura Nehring. I love the way the sketch is laid out, it has a wonderful main focal point and just enough detail without becoming fussy. You might notice I've sanded my embossed panel again. I'm really into sanding right now! I LOVE the way it enhances the embossing. The flower was stamped using the rock-n-roll method. If you look closely you can tell the tips of the flowers are darker than the center. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your day!
