Sketch for Isabella

As I mentioned earlier, I am away this week and won't be able to approve your comments until my return on June 12th but please feel free to leave them because I enjoy reading them very much.

This week at Isabella's Challenge we have been asked to follow a sketch and here is my project.  I was having trouble with camera so it may be a little difficult to see that the wide ribbon is a very dark brown.  While I love this colour combination, I must admit that I really wanted to see what brown pearls on the pink scalloped oval to provide a bit of contrast would look like, but I couldn't find any in the only local craft store I have and there wasn't time to order them from an online store.  If you think they would have added something to the design, close your eyes and pretend they are there and then let me know what you think.

The image from Isabella's Sketchbook is called Sweetheart Flower and has been coloured with a combination of Prismacolor and Koh-I-Noor pencil crayons.  The paper is from my stash and the card stock is Recollections (Michaels).  Other supplies used: Chalk (Mungyo), Ribbons (Fabricland), Pearl Stickers (Recollections), Pearl Brads (Gartner), Nestabilities (Spellbinder) and Border Punch (Martha Stewart).


  1. Totally yummy sweetness, Cec. Love your paper lace with the ribbon embellies, the tiny bows and the offsetting pearls. Terrific job on the challenge!

    Hope your trip is going well. Looking forward to your return.

  3. Cec this is delicate and elegant ( I don't do either!) Your little bows are perfect! Viv xx

  4. I think this is just beautiful, Cec!!! the ribbon, pearls, and border punch add to the elegance!

    hope the move is going well...

  5. Looking through your last few postings - the cards are gorgeous!! And they are different from each other. Great talent shows variety - you are very creative.
