DivaSC86 Oasis

Time for a Utah Divas Sketch Challenge. Today is number 86 (wow!) If you are starting here, don't miss the link to the next blog at the end of this post. Elizabeth will then direct you to the next stop on the hop.
For my card, I turned the sketch sideways and manipulated the shapes a bit. With the exception of the sentiment, there wasn't any stamping done for this card - it's all about the Island Oasis Designer Series Paper.

Now, I'm ready for Hawaii - I wish! Here are some notes about this card:
  • The leaves and flowers take place of the circles on the sketch. They are from the Island Oasis paper mentioned above. The flowers are from the flip side of the leaf pattern page used for the base.
  • All of the papers and pieces are sponged with Soft Suede ink and were crumpled to rough them up a bit. Flat just looked a little too "contained" for this card.
  • Our Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Pack made it easy to create a line of holes along the center strip. I then used a needle to guide the Linen Thread through the holes. 
  • "Miss You" is handwritten over the stamped sentiment.
 As always, I sincerely Thank you for stopping by! Now let's jump to the other side of Florida and check out what Elizabeth has for us. If you would like to see the entire list of participating Divas (with links) click here
