ODBDSLC226 - Sketch

Thank you to everyone who entered the colour challenge last week - there were some gorgeous entries! This week Our Daily Bread Designs has a sketch challenge for you - ODBDSLC226.

Here is the card that I made:
Our Daily Bread Designs, Music Speaks, ODBD Vintage Flourish Pattern Dies, ODBD Recipe Card and Tags Dies, ODBD Blooming Garden Paper Collection, Designed by Elizabeth Whisson, handmade card, Distress Markers, Distress Ink

And this is the sketch:

I made a rather large card this week. It is 7 inches by 5.5 inches! Much larger than my "normal" cards and as you can see I've turned the sketch sideways and flipped it. I've stamped the image from Our Daily Bread Designs Music Speaks onto X-Press It blending card and coloured with distress markers. I've then diecut it using ODBD Vintage Flourish Pattern dies and inked with Distress Ink Victorian Velvet while still in the die.
I've matted this using the largest die from ODBD Vintage Flourish Pattern dies and ODBD Blooming Garden Paper Collection

The background paper is also from ODBD Blooming Garden Paper Collection; however, because my card is larger than the paper pad, I've "joined" the DP under the ribbon. You can do this because you get two sheets of each pattern in the paper pads :-)

The sentiment is also from Our Daily Bread Designs Music Speaks and I have diecut it with ODBD Recipe Card and Tags dies. It has been inked while in the die with Distress Ink Victorian Velvet. 

Lastly I've added a white, satin ribbon and bow.
