Retrosketch #42

The inspiration for this card was this week's RetroSketch!

I wanted to use some of this pretty paper that I got a few weeks ago. I love stamping and heat embossing on vellum, so I decided to try that for the vertical panels shown on the sketch. A big flower was the perfect focal point, I tried to match it as closely as possible to the flowers on the paper. I cut several layers with the Spellbinder's Rose die. I added some Picket Fence stain and Rock Candy Stickles onto the petals. And finished it with a pretty brad for the center of the flower.
The sentiment is from MFT and it is stamped on my brand new Simon Says Stamps Banner die!
It cuts and scores!! And the pretty leaves are also MFT!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
