First: a HUGE thank you...

to Tara and Deborah at Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge Blog.  They, so kindly, gave me a special mention on the winners page from their last challenge (scroll to the bottom).  I am very honored.

On to the next challenge, #4.  Luckily for me, it is a sketch this time:

 I hope you all like the Funky flowers set as much as I do, 
cause I'm using it again:
 A couple of notes on this one.  
I do not have a fancy photography set up, nor a fancy camera.  I basically stand the cards on my desk, turn on my very old desk lamp (from the 60s, I think), turn off my flash and shoot away.  
So, first off, the band across the center looks brownish in the photo.  It is not brown at all; it is actually a pewter color.  Very similar to the Pewter SU embossing powder (love this stuff) that I used on the flower centers and around the larger oval.  I really like how the edge of the oval came out.  I new it needed a little something.  I just rolled the edges on my Versamark pad.

Secondly, the pearls actually match the stamped flowers almost perfectly and 
do not look garish at all in real life.
A small SU banner sentiment and die finish it off.

Wow another superb card Ang. I really love how you've embossed the shaped strip of card with the background, that's a really effective technique. I'll never tire of funky flowers it's one of my favourite sets too!
Thanks for your support of the Fanatics challenge!
