Wrapped Bouquet for AYSI 242

Last week's Speed Stamping, using your scrap box, brought in some fabulous entries. The team at As You See It can't wait to see what you do with this week's sketch.

I used the sketch as an excuse to have another play around with the Wrapped Bouquet bundle, from the 2021 January-June Mini-Catalogue.

I stamped the small spray of flowers in Old Olive and coloured it in using Stampin' Up! Coloured Pencils. I did this twice so that I could fussy cut out some flowers to layer onto the card, but this is an optional step. The spray looks great all by itself! After die-cutting it out, I also die cut some additional foliage in Old Olive. 

Before attaching my floral bouquet to the card, I used a Blending Brush to sponge on some Crushed Curry, then over-stamped the area using the newsprint pattern stamp. Then I put all the pieces together into the finished bouquet. The sentiment is from the sentiment-only set, Here's A Card.

I added three small rhinestones as flower centres and two more to lead the eye down to the sentiment.

How do you see this sketch? Join in and show us. You can see what the rest of the team have done, and link up your entry, at As You See It Challenge.

Inspiration for this card also came from the bright and summery colour challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.
