Bloggers Challenge - Sketch Challenge

Whew!!! So glad Blogger is back!

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday, thanks for stopping by today, with the bloggers issues in the last few days, I'm sure everyone is scrambling to get their posts up and running!  Such a great turn out we had for last weeks challenge - it was wonderful to see so many bloggers play along with such wonderful entries!

This weeks challenge is to use the following sketch


Feel free to rotate the sketch, change to a larger sized card, or change the circle to a different shape.
I changed my card size to 5-1/4" x 5-1/4"

To create my card, I used the beautiful Donna Salazar Antiquities Pattern Paper, and one of the new Bella Rose plates from Heartfelt Creations.  I used the Level Up Technique form a past issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter to create the Rose.  There's actually 4 different layers, and added color using the Marker Watercoloring Technique.  To finish I tied on some Seam Binding, added a Making Memories button and a sentiment from Heartfelt Creations Sympathy Sentiment set.

Details:
Stamps - Heartfelt Creations Sympathy Sentiment, Bella Rose Vase
Ink - Ranger Distress Ink Pumice Stone, Ranger Coffee Archival, Markers (Pretty in Pink, Celery)
Card Stock - Chocolate, Pretty in Pink
Other - Making Memories Button, Seam Binding, SAMJ, Scallop Punch, Spellbinders Circle Dies, H20 Brush, Donna Salazar Pattern Paper
