THE SKETCH!



TA DA! My mind was awhirl as I checked out the wonderful submissions on Card Patterns today. That sketch is wonderful. I must have been inspired because it just seemed so simple to make and I guess it is a simple card, very literally taken from the sketch, just turned around a bit.

The two triangular panels are scraps, lovely scraps, yes, on top of a pale lime note card. The die-cut is a tissue box, the sentiment is on a kraft paper die-cut tag and some lovely cream buttons. I used a gel pen to outline the tag as well as a few lines on the flower and scraped the sides of the squarish panel with Stays-ON white ink. I wanted it to have some depth, so just used the bottle of ink on some of it. Popped the center and the tag up and I was done.
