Woodware Sketch Challenge for April

Afternoon Everyone.
I trust that you are all having a good weekend, and that you have left enough room for dinner after all the chocolate.
I may not be the guest designer over at the Woodware challenge anymore but I still like to enter.
One thing about being guest was that I had to get my card done ready to post on the Sunday, so this is technically a week late :)
This week the challenge has been to work your magic with their new sketch.
I decided to use a lovely new clear stamp set JG5267 Grasses that I bought at Davina's.
I stamped and embossed it onto a narrow strip of white card using versamark ink and white embossing powder. Then I sponged Distress inks over the top using a combination of Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed and Wild Honey.
At work this week we have been selling some beautiful Spring bouquets which are filled with yellow and purple flowers and so I decided to use the same colours on my card.
I added some stitching to the sponged panels and a stamped greeting from another Woodware clear stamp set JGCL508 Jane's Script which was stamped with a black StazOn ink pad.
I am also trying to continue my vellum theme as per my challenge over at The Stamp Man, so I have added a strip of punched vellum across the centre of the card.
The flowers are punched from vellum using assorted Woodware flower punches.
Oh crumbs I've just noticed the date.
I need to get a card made for my Sin-in-Laws birthday tomorrow. Back to the Craft Room. Good job I did my post early as I can see a late night in my future lol.
Happy Crafting.
