Magnolia vs Stampavie - 21 - Sketch Challenge

Magnolia vs Stampavie have a fabulous sketch by Michelle for us this week. I used K&Co McKenna papers and the Sarah Kay image Spring Blossoms which I coloured with distress inks. I cut the swirl/flourish with the sizzix die and add punches leaves and flowers with small rose centers which I thought look rather like the flowers my little lady had been picking. The ribbon threaded through eyelet holes at the bottom looks a totally different colour of green - as this happens frequently with ribbon I can only suppose it's the shiny texture that picks up the light and photographs differently.


Materials
BC = white linene : BP - K&Co McKenna : Stamp - Sarah Kay Spring Blossoms : Ranger distress inks : Cropodile : Cuttlebut & Sizzix flourish die : EK Success Retro flower punch : Rest from stash

Hey you!
The only reason the stitching is neat on my CC card is because I used a stamp set, it wasn't my steady hand, lol! When you're thinking about your CC theme could you just put the colours into Google images and see what it throws up - that's what I do!
A divine card Heather with a fab choice of papers! I love the little roses too! xx

Hey Heather!! Thanks for always stopping by my blog! I always enjoy reading your comments. They really make my day! Your card is wonderful. I love the flowers. Did you make them? I wasn't sure if that was the flower punch you were referring to in your post.

Heather, this card is lovely! I really admire your coloring. The rose embellies are a perfect accent.

I really appreciate that you take time to leave comments. I am sure you are very busy! I am glad you admire Amy Sheffer too. I met Amy when I asked her to do a Stampin' Up! party for me a few years ago. We became friends instantly. I started blogging in June '07 and convinced Amy to start her own blog too. Now she is uber famous (I knew she would be!)
