Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge

OKAY...OKAY....I know....ANOTHER SKETCH CHALLENGE!!!  I am really finding that these challenges are a great way to get those creative juices flowing!  NO...I won't always be doing sketches, but I do plan on participating in three different ones for a while.  I hope you like them! 



Here is the sketch that Create with Connie and Mary have challenged us with this week.  Their blog is here  http://www.createwithconnieandmary.com/create-with-connie-and-mary/ 








The colors used in this card are Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Soft Sky, Old Olive and Whisper White.  I punched the flower out with the Pansy punch, in a couple of different Daffodil Delight designer papers, cut them apart and adhered them to same flower punched in Daffodil Delight cardstock.  The center is punched with the 3/4" circle punch and embossed with the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder.  When I adhered the center I inverted it so I would have a bit of a different look then the Soft Sky cardstock layer that was embossed with the same folder.  I added some Linen Thread, a button and some Bakers Twine which finishes it off NICELY!


Here are close up shots of the Pansy flower and the Linen Thread....I love how they turned out! 



....and FINALLY...the inside of the card!

I am off to a Cal Berkeley baseball game on Saturday and a San Francisco Giants game on Sunday... so I won't be back until Monday!  Be sure to check back to see what's going on!!

ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!!!
