Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #58

Hello, happy weekend and welcome to another Sketchbook post - again on Sunday! I've got to stop doing this...
Once more I'm giving credit for the inspiration behind the sketch and my card. It goes to the talented Debbie Olson, with this beautiful card that I had saved in my "to-CASE" folder for a long time.

That's the thing with my crafting, it's hugely based on inspiration. Everything I know, I learnt from the talented people out there, and I could honestly base my crafting solely on copying their artwork... in a good way, that is! That's how CASE Study came into existence, because I think learning from each other by trying to tackle their style is great fun and really helps us expand horizons.
Enough babbling, though. I want to show you what I made!

I based my colours of CR84FN53, hence the choice of My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart/Be Happy papers was a no-brainer. I layered them neatly and added lots of texture with sewing. Mmmm, sewing... how I love thee!

I cut the scalloped border with Spellbinders™ Edgeabilities® Classic Scallop, and created the frame by cutting/embossing Classic Squares LG and Classic Scalloped Squares LG Nestabilities®.
The stamps (sentiment, flowers, as well as the vintage seed packet images), are from WPlus9 Hope Seed Co. set.
I coloured the flowers with Copics, a very rudimentary colouring job that is...

I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with now!

A few things to keep in mind if you decide to use my sketch:
- You're kindly asked to save the image onto your computer first, and if you make a card based on it, please link back to this post.
- If you upload your card to an online gallery, use the code SSC58.
- Feel free to share the link to your creation via the Inlinkz widget, so that I can come and check it out!
- The colours/elements mean nothing towards the card. All styles, colours and supplies, as well as slight alterations of the sketch are welcome.
- A new sketch and sample is posted every Saturday, but you're welcome to play any time! Just leave a link in the comments section after Inlinkz widget closes.
