Card Patterns Sketch #136

I am guest designing this week at Card Patterns!  The sketch is a fun one to play with and inspired me to pull out my pattern papers to create a patchwork background. 

The background papers are from My Minds Eye - Lost and Found II.  I sponged the edges of the ivory card base and the papers with Ranger Distress ink - Vintage Photo.  The main image was stamped two times using brown ink on pattern paper.  The flowers and leaves were colored with watercolor pencils and highlighted with white gel pen.  I hand cut the flowers from the second image and pop dotted them to create layers. The sentiment is from Verses Rubbers Stamps -  Let us Be Grateful - QQ0852-F.

Here is the lovely sketch:
