inspirational card sketches 29 ANDdiecutsrus layering






happy wednesday :) this is for this weeks sketch challenge over at ICS and thought id drop it off at DCRU too , as their theme yesterday was layering.
for this i used my cricut and jasmine (corners layered) and wild card (leaves) cartridges. i distressed and colored the leaves with colorbox fluid chalk rolled the tips and edges to give them a more life~like appearance. the sentiment is computer generated, i added amber colored rheinestones. the gorgeous paper is memorybox/twiggy. thanks so much for sittin a few with me :)have a great rest of day :) shelly
