Enjoy Michael Strongs' Rubber Stamps - September Sketch

I just love card sketches and had fun creating this card for the September card sketch challenge for the yahoo group Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps. Check out Michael’s blog for great ideas.


I embossed Michael’s Cloisonne’ pot and cut the design to create a wide mouth plant pot. I then added a dragon fly, flourishes and several flowers made using a selection of flower punches.

The pot, flourishes and dragonfly (by Hero Arts) were coloured with several different colours of Metallic Rub Ons. A button and brads were added to finish of the card.

Now back to crafting and of course clean up.

Be creative
