Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #55

Sketch 55 is live over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge, and I hope you will join in this week! The sketch is so fun.

I wanted to try a tutorial I had seen for faux pressed flowers to use on my card.

I stamped some branches from the A Garden stamp set, then added paper flowers onto the cardstock. I also added the Ivy Lane zipstrip to the card. I ran it through my Cuttlebug using the stripes folder, both horizontally and vertically to get a grid effect. Then I added the sentiment and adhered the cardstock to a Cocoa card base.

I love the look of this effect, and it was very easy to do!

Thanks for visiting my blog today, let me know if you have popped by and I can return the love. I enjoy finding new blogs to read!
