French Diamonds for F #49

Hi there,
It was a hot and balmy day here in Victoria Oz so a great  day to stay inside with the air-con on and make a few cards. This one is my entry into this weeks Challenge at Feeling Sketchy. Here is the sketch we had to follow:

And this is what I came up with. When I first saw the sketch I thought OMG what am I going to do with that.......I don't work well with diamonds! But once I pulled the papers out it all came together quickly.

The gorgeous papers are from the Lost & Found 3 paper pad by My Minds Eye. I am a real red girl so just love the colour combo of this pad. The flowers which are from the Stampin Up set "Growing Green" have been stamped in Black Momento Ink and the coloured with my Pro Markers to get the depth. That gorgeous flourish is from Cheery Lane Design called Fanciful Flourish B117 and I have also added a touch of colour to it with my Markers.

 The words in the center piece are also from Stampin Up! All pieces have had the sponged treatment and a few well placed (if I do say so myself lol) finishes it off nicely.
I hope you like this weeks entry, leave me a comment I love to know what you think of my work.
