Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #110

Happy Friday! It's time for another sample card for Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge. Here is this week's sketch:

Here is my card:

I used Vinnie Pearce's gorgeous digital kit "Poised" for my card. I am so attracted to the shades of blue in this kit. The patterned papers all have beautiful intricate patterns. Vinnie's kit is available separately. You can find the solid papers here, journal tags here, elements here, white fabric alphas here and the full kit here.

The big flower looks so realistic! I didn't do anything to it. I just printed it out, cut it then pop dotted it. In real life it's flat (one layer), but it just looks amazing in the photos. The digi did all the work for me! =) The sentiment is from the oh so easy to use SRM Stickers. I also stitched on each of the patterned paper squares to add a little more interest.

Well, that's all I have for now. Don't forget to check out what all the other members of the TESC Sketch Crew came up with for this sketch!! Here are the links:
