Here's my card based on the sketch directly. I used the colours in the Haiku paper as my inspiration. Now that it's available at a clearance price, I ordered 5 packs... so I feel like I can use more of my stash. This was one of my all time favorite paper packs!
The second card is basically a copy of Carrie's card using some different colours. Once again I used the colours from the Thoroughly Modern paper as a starting point. I ended up substituting Soft Suede with Basic Grey, and Bermuda Bay with Taken with Teal. I am still a little mournful towards losing Taken with Teal. Considering turquoise is such an in colour this year and Bermuda Bay isn't sticking around, I was a little taken aback at that particular decision! Oh well, hopefully there will still be some paper around for my upcoming stamp club order!
For the ribbon and bow, I wrapped a piece of double sided tape around where I intended to place the bow. I gathered it in so it would look like the bow actually originated from that point. I made the bow on my plastic canvas version of the bow-easy, then stuck it on. So much easier than figuring out the right lengths and worrying about which way the bow ends up!
