Friday Sketcher's Challenge 91
I've had a very busy weekend! My eldest daughter and her youngest child, my precious Kyle, came up for a visit. We have such a close relationship and I just adore it when she can get free and come and spend some time with us. We had a wonderful weekend together, visiting, going to church and shopping!
I wanted to work on a card for the Friday Sketcher's Challenge this week, and managed to steal a few hours for myself. I have such a hard time working with bright colors, preferring the softer pastels. I also have a hard time working with busy patterns. So this was a challenge in and of itself. I did want to use some of my Basic Grey Lemonade dp's which were a gift from a friend. So here's the card I came up with and I have to say, thank you Jacque for the inspiration on how to use the ribbon. I chose tulle instead of ribbon, so that you could see the paper through it.
I colored my image with Copic markers...so here's a closer view:
Here is my card recipe:
Cardstock - SU
DP - Basic Grey
Tulle; Pearls - Stash
Butterfly Punch- MS
Flowers and border punches - SU
Leaf and Vine Punch - EK Success
I didn't have enough of that pretty Bluegreen paper to finish the inside of my card. I used some coordinating paper from the same Lemonade series to complete my card. The sheets are only 6X6, but I did find a little scrap of it to finish the bottom of the place where I will write my message. I used my new EK Success punch out that piece.
Here are the Copic markers I used...
