For our Bloggers Challenge this week, Lisa gave us a sketch challenge.

I had some fun making Technique Junkies backgrounds last week- called Metallic Parchment.  I intended this to be used for a soldier card, but it screamed FLOWERS to me today!  SO…….

The base is Kraft spritzed with Glimmer Mist.  Next, is the Metallic Parchment- it is olive green and Carmel in color with Gold highlights.  The main panel is stamped with Old Olive, Apricot and Pumpkin markers and the floral image.  The edges are pierced and gold ribbon added.  There is a metallic gold piece behind the floral panel. The final accent is a dragonfly brad from Markies Finer Papers- they have awesome brads and charms.  Three Pumpkin colored Dew drops finish the card.
