The Reverse Confetti design team is joining CardMaker Magazine today for a blog hop! Hope you'll hop along with us for lots of card-making inspiration!

Today also happens to be my day to play along with this month's Sketch For You To Try, which looks like this:

For my card, I started with some stamped and die-cut roses and leaves from Rose Garden. The roses I used are solid images, so to add depth, I shaded the petals using Copic markers. The leaves are line art images. I heat embossed in white, then added color using sponge daubers. I arranged the flowers on a charcoal gray Thanks Tag.
The sentiment, from Posted Note Sentiments, is stamped onto a notched banner flag and popped up over the flower cluster.
For the two-piece vertical strip, I went with white-on-white Double Panel Circles Confetti Cuts strips. Last, I embellished with some white satin sequins and some white linen thread.
