And here is our last sketch challenge for April:

Here is my card:

I used lots of different techniques for my background. I started with manilla card stock. I taped the Tim Holtz Doily stencil to the manilla card stock with some Washi tape. I sponged Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber and Twisted Citron Distress inks with ink dabbers. Next, I used a Tim Holtz Clear Emboss It dabber and dabbed the entire stenciled area with it. I carefully removed the stencil and then sprinkled Neutral Ultra Shimmer embossing powder all over the embossed area. I heat set this with my heat gun. Next, I misted the panel with Dylusions London Blue ink spray. I outlined a few of the leaves with with a multi-liner.  I ended up with this beautifully textured panel!  I was able to die cut 2 pieces for 2 cards with the SugarPea Designs Heart Journal Card die. Finally, I added the silk flowers and the SugarPea Designs Thanks die!

Here is another card! I just changed the color of the sentiment!

Below are the SugarPea Designs Sugar Cuts that I used:
