Sketchabilities Challenge with Want2Scrap

Thank you for the get well wishes, friends. I am recovering at home now, so it's a relief. I'm still trying to take it slow, but I'm expecting a group of 15 friends (only 5 are staying with us) tomorrow from America! I've done most of the work before the surgery, so just little touch ups here and there (so, don't worry, Mom).

Today's card is for my friend Karan's Sketchabilities challenge. The Want2Scrap team is joining in the fun today with our version of this sketch. And the prize is a $25 gift certificate to the Want2Scrap store! It's a scrapbook layout that I reinterpreted to make my card below.
I started by heat embossing the text from Penny Black's The Love Chapter set with white on a Manilla tag. I spritzed water on a few drops of Distress Ink refills on a waterproof surface. Then I dabbed the tag on the inks to absorb the smorgasbord of colors. I let it dry and embellished it. I adhered a delicate Want2Scrap Silhouette using SA by 3L Dodz;  the black makes it stand out from the colorful background. I carefully laid part of the Swirls Finesse - White Pearls - 2 Pack - Self Adhesive on the silhouette, then layered a vintage lace and a paper flower accented with Art Glitter on the petal edges.
The papers Authentique's Strong, which again I used to make a feminine project with. The sentiment is from Penny Black's Dahlias, which is accented by Gesso-covered Card Size Antique Keys w/hardware - Chipboard . I adhere the tag to the card front using SAby3L's 3D Foam Squares. A doily, seam binding and Want2Scrap's Sleek Strips Pearls-White were added to the corners, bow and silhouette.
Make sure you visit the Want2Scrap blog to see what the rest of the DT members did. I hope you can join us!
