Stampin' Up! Graceful Garden card

Jillian Selwood, Purple Jelly Designs, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you.  The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

This month I was my turn to design the sketch and this is what I came up with - I do like clean and simple cards and you can't get more clean and simple than this!

I started off with a Card base of Powder Pink and stamped a layer of Whisper White with the background stamp from Graceful Garden. I cut three squares with the Stitched Shapes framelits dies of differing sizes and scalloped  squares from Powder Pink cardstock.

I used the large rose from the Graceful Garden stamp set for the largest square, the smaller rose for the medium sized square and then the sentiment 'for you' for the smallest square.

I then decided to add some ribbon, the 1/2" Finely woven ribbon in Powder pink worked perfectly. When I lined all the squares up I didn't really like how it looked so I adhered the white stitched squares at an angle. I also adhered the smallest square at an angle as well.

I'm really pleased with how this has turned out and can't wait to see what everyone else has come up with.
