CPS186 - Artichoke

Happy Friday! Do you have big plans for the weekend? It's going to be beautiful here this weekend! 

I created this card as a thank you note for my sister for a gift she recently gave us. The gift was wrapped in white butcher-type paper that she had stamped all over with this artichoke image. I cut a few of the images out and colored them using colored pencils, then cut out some of the artichoke leaves and layered them on the base layer using foam tape to give it some dimension, like a real artichoke. 

I used two different patterned papers, with the side panels cut to fit this week's CPS186 sketch, and topped it all off with a few strips of ScorTape that I then covered with Flower Soft.  Finally, I added some stitch marks around the patterned paper layers to make them stand out more.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!
