I used the sketch as the basis for four of the Thank You cards I need to get making. It's a start, anyway!
I started by printing the sentiment directly onto the card, then I borrowed an idea from Joanne of Angelnorth fame and used my scoring board to create the embossed parallel lines - I placed a ruler where I wanted the gap in the lines to be at right angles to make it easier to get the stop/start position correct on each line. They show up better on this photo
The little silhouette image is a Craft Robo template I made a few weeks ago for a Daring Cardmakers challenge. I usually make a "blank" version of my templates to use as a base for fitting all the other layers on to - and sometimes even that piece comes in handy! The stem, leaves and flower are also cut with Craft Robo

I was really happy at how they turned out - I love the tiny splashes of bright colours on the otherwise monochrome card. I might be seeing what else I can find to use this basic idea with!
