Case this Sketch 121

I saw this sketch at Case this Sketch and I knew exactly what I wanted to do, and my card is very representative of the picture in my head. Yea~!

 

I used some 140 lb cold press watercolor paper and my Koi watercolors to create a very bold hot pink background area.  On top of that is some gold embossed vellum using  WPLUS9's Pretty Peonies, and the sentiment comes from SSS Friendship Messages.  Embossing Powder is from Hero Arts.  



Attaching vellum is always a bit of a trick. I decided to glue it down with tape glider and then covered it with a bit of gold foil paper. The water color panel was matted onto an SU Strawberry Slush card base.



Thanks for stopping by!
