I have a card to share with you this morning that was inspired by a sketch from Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge and The Shabby Tea Room.
Here is the card I created:
This is the sketch:
Then when I saw the inspiration photo at The Shabby Tea Room I instantly knew the two would go together.
I have had a small piece of leftover ribbon sitting on my desk for like a month not wanting to throw it out but not knowing what to do with such a small piece. I ended up stapling the ends together to make a loop and cut another piece the same size so I could use them as leaves for my flower. For the cardstock I pulled colors from the photo and used the white base of the card for my background. It was too plain for my liking so I embossed it with an Anna Griffin embossing folder and inked it lightly with Walnut Stain distress ink. I then embossed the three other pieces of cardstock using a different folder for each piece. (I know I went a bit crazy with my Cuttlebug. ;) I felt like the colors were a bit too bright so I used a Walnut Stain ink on them too.
And there you have it! This was such a fun sketch to use.
I hope you join in on the challenges and let me know if you do. I would love to see your creations too!
