Sketch Time at Always Playing with Paper

Here I am finally able to play with paper again
having had an extremely busy few weeks with
Doctor's Appointments and procedure for hubby who is now
home and in recovery mode - which means I do most
of the heavy work around the house for the next 6 weeks.
I couldn't wait to play with the current sketch challenge over at
I decided I would flip my card around and go from there.
I loved the idea of the circles on the sketch below
 hence I got out my circle stencil
and gave my background the bokeh technique.
 using Memento Lulu Lavendar and Sweet Plum.
The leaves, tiny stamped flowers and sentiment are from
Gina K Designs Stippled Nature.
Memento Pistachio for the leaves and
SU Rich Razzleberry on the flowers.
My bigger flowers are also from SU
Flower Shop and Petite Petals.
They go so well together.
Did a little spritzing and finishing off with
popping the flowers and adding pearls to the centres
and liquid pearls to the tiny flowers.
Used basic card stock and rounded off the corner.
Oh and of course I used my favourite colour - purple.
Below is the sketch to follow.
I really enjoyed this challenge and look forward to seeing
next weeks Colour Challenge - one of my favourites.
Thanks for dropping in.

This card is super gorgeous! I love those colors too! Great job and I like that you turned it into a rectangle style of card when you used the sketch.
