PPA 256: A Sketch Challenge

A friend mine is into reading about the histories of European queens and princesses these days, so I thought this was a perfect card to send her.

I was inspired by Kerry's sketch of PPA256.


I wanted to give a little antique-y feelings, so I used the muted blue (Not Quite Navy) and red (Riding Red Hood). I could have done without the sequins, but I'm glad I've added them. Queens and princesses need some bling! :-)

Stamps: Artistic Etchings, French Foliage
Paper: Very Vanilla, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, Riding Red Hood
Ink: Early Espresso, Sahara Sand
Accessories: 3/4" Circle Punch, Frosted Sequins, Hemp Cord, Dimentionals
