Freshly Made Sketches #43

Tui Nathan has a great sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  I know I have mentioned it numerous times, but I just love the sketches at FMS.  If you are just now joining in, you can view the past sketches here.  Here is the original sketch for this week-

I stayed true to the sketch, just added layers to all of my shapes.  Layers are totally optional.  I just happened to be in the layering mood and layered everything on my card!

My layered flower was created with the Heartfelt Treasures stamp set.  I stamped my outline in Hollyhock ink and then stamped my solid shape with second generation Hollyhock ink.  The center flower shape is actually cut from a piece of the Sophia pattern paper with a little added bling.

All supplies by Close To My Heart:

C1456 Heartfelt Treasures
D1476 Card Chatter-Sympathy
X7131A Sophia Level One Kit (This kit is retired, but I have an extra set for sale on my For Sale page)
Z2128 Hollyhock Ink
Z2197 Pear Ink
Z1104 Clear Sparkles
