5th Challenge on Cupcake Craft Challenges... Sketch by Lauren

This week we had a sketch to interpret as our weekly challenge on Cupcake CC. Lauren designed the sketch for us.
From the first time I saw it, I could see that it fitted perfectly well for a card for the guys :)

Boyish cards aren't my speciality, but I loved working with this layout. Simple and elegant.
The Magnolia images are painted with watercolours, i used two different sts, to have more choice of colous, and in the end I defined his trousers with some gel pen colour from paintbrush.

The embossed background was entirely hand- embossed. It took me one and a half hours, and beleive me, my hand and shoulders ached after that! lol
paper ribbon and sentiment: HOTP Cardmaker's Earth Palette
Matt behind images: DCWV Text prints matt stack
Brads and fibres from stash.

This week, it would be brilliant if we have more entries.. com'on this won't take you long!! :)
I'd like to see some new ideas, at least when I'll use this sketch again, I'll have more interpretations in my mind ;)

Thanks for looking!

Wishing you love .. and laughter..
forever after!! :)

A truly beautiful card Rosette! And I admire you for your strength to do an embossed background which takes 1,5 hours :)
Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. You touched my heart with it!
