STAMPlorations Sketch challenge #15

Hi, here is my second blog post for today - please scroll down for the House of Cards challenge post!
So its time again for the new sketch challenge at STAMPlorations!

And here is my interpretation:

I kept it very simple - the colorful background panel I colored with alcohol inks on glossy card stock. This beautiful lily stamp I also stamped on glossy card stock and popped it up with foam tape and some gold thread behind it.

I used the sets Boxed Blooms and Bold Sentiments and PATCHWORK FRENZY: Graphic Squares (sentiment) for this card. Here is a close-up:

Go and visit the STAMPlorations blog to let our wonderful DT inspire you and also have a look at the fabulous card from our talented Guest Designer Monika!

The challenge ends July 18; the winner will be announced July 20

I am also linking this up with this month Bizzy Becs Challenge - Anything goes
and A Blog named Hero - color it in - colored the background panel

This is way cool, I just love the background panel, it's the subtle angle of the mat and the gold thread that add the spark!

Love how you kept the image black and white against that lovely background panel :)

Beautiful card, so clever keeping the image black and white, makes such a contrast also allows the background to really stand out.

Hi Cornelia. Love the B&W lily against your colourful BG and your great little touches of adding the gold thread and slightly offsetting the coloured panel. Have a fab day! hugs Monika xxx
