well this week was delightfully peaceful which was a nice change from the previous one that was filled with the kids taking turns with allergic reactions and tummy bugs - urg! The sun has come out too which almost makes me feel like its spring except for the fact that we've woken to super frosty mornings. The challenge this week at Just Add Ink to Just Add a Sketch was just perfect for a flowery springy card (one can hope). Here's the sketch.
And here is what I made of it.
The inside (ick I just couldn't get the colour balance right on this one!)
My original colour choice was a blue/crumb cake palette (just perfect for the friend it was intended for) and then found I needed to add the red to make it all pop. I had fun putting it together, playing around with the flowers till I was happy with the arrangement and adding lots of texture with ribbon, twine, buttons, rhinestones and candy dots.
Hopefully you'll find the sketch as user friendly as I did. Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT for some great inspiration!
