JAI 158 Just add a sketch

Hello there,
hope you had fun going green last week :) This week at Just Add Ink we have a great sketch challenge for you. Our early Autumn flush of roses hasn't really showed up yet, probably because we had such a long dry spell, but despite that I still had roses on my mind. Luckily roses were also going to be perfect for making my MIL a birthday card. Here's the sketch.
Here's the rosey result ;)

Apricot appeal was my colour starting point, I still have small amount in my stash and I tend to pull it out for my MIL - she really has a thing for this shade. I guessed that Regal Rose and Rose Red would work with Apricot Appeal to make beautiful roses and I must admit I loved how they turned out! (So did my MIL). The sketch of course was my guide for the layout and I added lots of girly details and texture. Stamping the roses took a while but it was a fun card to make and one worth enjoying once it was done :) 

Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT. There are lots of fabulous ideas for the sketch. Thanks for visiting,
