Happy 4th Blogaversary Unscripted Sketches #206

This is a very special card for a very special event.  It is the 4th Anniversary of Unscripted Sketches.  I think I have been following this blog or doing the sketch challenges for at least 2 of those  4 years.
Congratulations!  Here is my card:

Close up of the stamped background with the word "four" randomly stamped.

SK175 US206 

The card base is Baja Breeze, layered with Whisper White.  The next layer is DSP made by stamping  the word "four" randomly all over the surface of a piece of Whisper White card stock. - using  Baja Breeze ink and the new Photopolymer stamp set. The stamped paper was then embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder. All edges were sponged with Baja Breeze ink.

The focal image was stamped with Black Stazon ona piece of Whisper White.  The image was painted using ink pads and an Aqua painter.  The edges of the Whisper White were sponged with Baja Breeze ink and thie piece matted with Baja Breeze card stock.  Some dazzling details was applied to the flower centers and edges.The two layers were adhered together using dimensionals and then  attached to the top left of the card.  

A strand of Baja Breeze seam binding was adhered across the top of the card with a bow placed at the right edge of the focal image. The sketch placed the bow on the left side, but it would have covered up the image so I moved it to the right.

Stamps: Bordering on Romance, A Word for You, Photopolymer stamp set
Inks: Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, Old Olive
Paper: Baja Breeze, Whisper White

Fabulous job! Cha-ching with the extra entries by stamping all the 'fours'....that is so clever...I love it! Your card is so beautifully detailed and really does reflects your amazing attention to all the details (inked edges, dazzling details, embossed panel, aqua painter)!

Thanks for getting into the party spirit with us this week at Unscripted Sketches and for the lovely Happy Blog-iversary card :)

Love your colouring Maria. The background is a fun idea too. Of course I am a sucker for all things blue, so I really love your colour combo.

I love how you incorporated the 4's in the background. It gives it a great texture. Thanks for playing along with us at Unscripted Sketches.
