Freshly Made Sketches: Hello

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Karren.

I recently received my April Small Die of the Month Club from Spellbinders and what do you know... fun layered flowers that are perfect for this sketch!!

FMS Hello

There are a lot of layers on each flower - luckily I have enough cardstock to layer up in the same color families!  There was even one more layer in the die set - but I used enamel dots for a bit of sparkle and shine instead of the top layer.  The "hello" is also from the set.  I added the solid black strip to help it stand out more.  The leaves have another detailed layer on top but I wanted to keep the focus on the flowers so I left them at the base layer.  

I hope to see you playing along this week!
