Hi all, sorry if I've been a little quiet. I've been very busy crafting and hubby's been working from home since Thursday, so very little peace to get on with blogging! lol.
I was super lucky to win one of Marianne's birthday candies the other week, and she sent me a LOTV floral sketch pad. How perfect is that! Thank you again Marianne, I love it!
So without further ado, my first card made with said gorgeous pad.
I chose the purple/turquoise colour combination, as we'd been out shopping on Friday, and as we were walking through Wilkinsons, I saw a basket full of purple and turquoise pillows, and all I could think was "I love those two colours together!"
I added a bit of a rustic feel by giving the (milk?) container the flowers are in a brownish tint, and throwing in some gorgeous burlap ribbon I also found in Wilkinsons (in the Christmas wrapping isle...), as well as the obligatory distressing of course :-)
I had the perfect little satin bow to add, but of course I wanted to add some ribbon too and didn't have any in the right colour... Promarkers to the rescue! One strip of white satin ribbon + one turquoise Promarker (same colour that's used on the image) = turquoise ribbon! :-D
And a peek at the inside:
So there you have it, first card with the sketch pad. The card the images are printed on is insanely smooth! Just gorgeous!
