JAI #283 Just add a sketch

Hello there,
this week at Just Add Ink we have a sketch for you from Narelle. It's got some classic lines that I thought would be perfect for my parent's wedding anniversary. This year they are reaching 49 years! The nice thing is that our family is always together for this event each year as it's right before Christmas (yes I'm doing a bit of planning ahead here :).
Here's the sketch.
And here is what I made of it.

Dad often gives Mum red roses so I decided to go with that theme this year. Using red and mixing it with earthy kraft and some softening vellum. As you can see I did make one small change to the sketch pulling the horizontal element from the back to the front of the layers. To add some mobile pops of colour I tucked some red sequins in under the vellum, stitching them in. The inside was finished off with another little red rose.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's fabulous projects. Hope you will join us for the sketch this week.

  1. This is such a fabulous Anniversary card for your parent's special Anniversary Kim. I love how your white embossed rose and the wonderful red sequins hiding behind the vellum - so fun! xx

  2. SO beautiful Kim! Love the gorgeously coloured rose one the front! Just pops right out at you! Very clever stitching the vellum layer on and popping some sequins behind it! Love it! Rochelle xo

  3. Wow, this is one fabulous anniversary card. I love the stitched vellum and your beautifully coloured rose. The inside of your card is just as gorgeous as the outside. Totally love! xx
