FTL49 - Thinking of You

Hi everyone! I can't begin to tell you how excited I am that I was asked to be a contributor for the weekly sketches. :) I found my way to this awesome blog via Becky's blog 4 months ago, and have been hooked ever since. I *love* sketch challenges, but sometimes I find myself having to sit them out because I can't find a way to make them fit my style (LOL, whatever that is!)... I never feel that way with the sketches posted here every week. You can keep them CAS or you can dress them up a bit, and I love that!

Here is the sample I came up with using the Fall-to Layout #49 sketch. I stayed pretty true to the sketch that was provided, the only changes being that my strip of patterned paper is 1 1/4", and I didn't tie a bow with my ribbon.

Supplies:
Stamps - Ashley's Blossoms (My Cute Stamps), Vintage Picnic Basic Sentiments (PTI)
Ink - Stazon Black
Paper - Raspberry Fizz, Whisper White, Basic Black, Black & White Basics
Miscellaneous - Raspberry Fizz Twill Ribbon, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch

Love your card, Heather. Crisp and clean - and the black leaf image really pops. Congrats on your good news!

Debbie said...

This is just amazing, and my favourite colour combo ever!! The layout is great and the colours used really make the images pop!! I have finally figured out that Clean & Simple cards really rely on colour more than anything and you have most definitely mastered that!! :-) Thanks for sharing!!
