Sketch Frenzy Friday, 10-3-14, Sympathy Rose

Hi Y'all!  TGIF!  And on Friday I get to show you another sketch from Sketch Frenzy Friday!  This week's sketch is from  Kathy Clark!  I hope you like it and will join us!

Here's the Sympathy card I made with it.

I have been practicing with my SU! Blendabilities, and this focal point was large enough for me to use the Sweetbriar Rose stamp. 

Sweetbriar Rose & Bloom With Hope stamps 
Whisper White - cut to 3 3/4" x 2 3/8",
Real Red - base, & 2 mats:  3 7/8" x 2 3/4" and 4 7/8" x 1 3/4"
Flashback Designer Series Paper - red - cut to 5 1/4" x 4"
Park Lane DSP - green - cut to 4 3/4" x 1 3/8"
Brights Candy Dots, dimensionals
Blendabilities Markers - Old Olive, Crumb Cake & Cherry Cobbler sets;  Color Lifter

Of course, the Color Lifter is vital!  Because I make mistakes, and i do it often.  I also used the Lifter for lightening up the center of the roses.

I colored the roses on a scrap piece of Whisper White, so I could cut them out & not have to worry about coloring out of the lines.  I challenged myself to use all three of the Old Olive markers on the leaves, but only used two Crumb Cake markers for the stems.

Won't you join us this week, by adding your post using the InLinkz at the bottom of the Sketch Frenzy Friday post?  I would love to see what cards you come up with!

Happy weekend!
