CAS-ual Fridays CFC65: Square Cards and Hero Arts Sketch Challenge




Still not done playing with these roses from Hero Arts CG434 Floral Blossoms :)


Using the negative space of a vase die cut from Cricut Walk in My Garden cart I sponged it with Hero Arts soft pool ink onto a die cut white cs circle.  The roses were inked with Ranger dusty concord and peeled paint and Stampin' Up wisteria wonder markers.  The largest bloom is adhered with foam tape for some dimension.  Sentiment is from Hero Arts CL476 With Sympathy.
Other Materials Used:  Stampin' Up pp, Cuttlebug swiss dot embossing folder, Hero Arts clear gems (colored with copic marker), W R Memory Keepers corner rounder

I'm linking this up to the CAS-ual Fridays challenge #65 to create a square card:

CFC65


I met my friend Ruthie for dinner last night - was so great to catch up:)  Seeing her reminded me it's been far too long since I participated in a Hero Arts challenge so I'm entering my card in this month's sketch challenge!  Ruthie's the one who got me started on their challenges way back in 2009!!!  I am incredibly thankful for her for that as my life has been soooooo enriched by being part of the wonderfully supportive and inspirational on-line world of cardmakers that includes all of you!!!

Hugs :)
