A flower basket

Hello everyone! I hope the weekend has kick started on a good note for everyone.
I spent the morning in a mall, to buy a formal suit for my 14 year old son, who will be performing for his school's music band soon. From buying baby clothes and toys to formal suits , - we have indeed come a long way in just a couple of years! I am very happy today, just by looking at him :D

I am sharing a card which I started a couple of days back, and I was kind of stuck with it, so left it unfinished for these many days. Yesterday I finally came around and finished it. I don't know if it happens to anyone, but I have few cards in my stash, on which I get stuck half way, and go back finish them later. Thankfully, it doesn't happen a lot!

I started it as a one layer card, I drew the basket - my freehand doodling, including the handle, and then I added the sunflowers in brown, these flowers are from my custom made stamps. Then I went on to color the sunflower and the basket, I tried my best to color it to give a realistic look, and I think I had some success with it ;)
I was stuck here, and left it like that for many days.
I decided to add the sentiment on vellum and heat embossed it. This sentiment is from Kaisercraft, and I also added a bow to the basket handle.
Its a simple card, hope you like it.

Linking this card with:

Uniko Studio

Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate your kind  feedback :) Have a great day!


  1. leaving the card for a few days obviously helped! And adding the sentiment on the vellum was perfect and works in with our sketch perfectly. Great to see you at Uniko and good luck with the draw x

  2. Gorgeous the basket :)

  3. So impressed with your drawing skills, Rahmat! Love the vellum sentiment!

  5. Agree with Sandie sometimes leaving the card for some days helped...and great idea to put the sentiment on the vellum..nice sentiment in gold Rahmat...and you drew the basket wooohoooo another talent from you...may I tell you...if I draw it looks so small or so big also not propotional thats why I was failed at the test to the University to be an Architect...they choose me to be Civil Engineer cause my Mathe note more better than my Drawing was a true story....hope you have a great weekend Rahmat...hugs, Monika your far away Munich
