So far out of my comfort zone...

...but a challenge is a challenge.

I found this pad of paper at JoAnn's a while back and because it was only $1.99 I bought it.
This card needed flowers and matching card stocks (at least that's what I thought!) so I pulled out the pad and found it went well.
I cut out the base card and applied the light teal ribbon as per the sketch.
On the inside I applied a piece of the brown textured card stock to cover most of the ribbon.
Next I cut a piece for the rectangle on the front as well as the piece behind it and taped them down.
The oval was die cut from another piece with a piece behind it and taped off set on the card front, then trimmed away.
To make the verse piece I found a part of the patterned paper that wasn't too dark and stamped the Tim Holtz verse from his "Phrases 2" set.
I cut that to a square with a background piece and taped it down.
To finish cut floers and swirls from the two patterned papers and glue dotted them to the front of the card.

I too struggle with sketches but I think you have done a fab job with this one and love your choice of colours, many thanks for creating such a lovely card just for our Allsorts challenge.

I agree! The sketch was hard wasn't it? But you totally nailed it. Love your take on the sketch. The colours are great and I love the sentiment. x

Really lovely card, great papers and sentiment, lovely colours too.
Thank you for joining our 'Sketch' challenge this week at Allsorts especially as it was so out of your Comfort zone. To be honest we have a few challenges that are totally out of my comfort zone too.
