Sketch by Jenn Challenge At Classy Cards 'n Such

Here is the card I have featured today at Classy Cards 'n Such
promoting the sketch challenge below!
I hope you can find the time to join us,
there is a lovely prize awarded to the winner!!

It's time for another fun challenge at "Classy Cards 'n Such.....
I hope you can join us this week for challenge #19
"A sketch by our own DT member Jenn"

For my project today I  took one look at the sketch
and knew right away I wanted to use the Spellbinders "Heart Circles" die
for my focal point to add my flowers to.

I used Cheery Lynn Designs "Gardenia Strip" to make my flowers.
The color was added using "Permanent Red" from the 
The PanPastels go on so smoothly, and depending on the pressure you use,
you can get the light to dark tones on your flower..
To apply the color I used PanPastels Sofft Covers with a quick, soft sweep
on the petals.  

All the petals were "conditioned" with a Stylus from Paper Blossoms Tool Kit
The leaves underneath were cut with Cheery Lynn Designs "Judy's Blooms"
and water colored with TH Distress Marker Peeled Paint.

The panel on the side is Cheery Lynn Designs "Mesh Border" cut from 
KaiserCrafts 12 x 12 paper "Key To My Heart".
The sentiment  "Adore" is from JustRite stamp set 
I finished my card by rounding off the 2 right corners, for a softer look.

This was a fun sketch and I can't wait to see what "YOU" create.

Entering in the following challenges:
Love To Create "use red and/or pink"
Craft-Dee BowZ "anything goes"
