I went with the colors and the sketch, as well as the themes of flowers & friendship.
My patterned paper looks a bit blue in the photo but it matches the periwinkle much better in real life! The peony card base reads a bit pale too, oh well - we can be liberal with the shades! For my take on the sketch I put the patterned paper behind the die cut to fill the long window in the diecut with the trio of windows on the bottom half.
I was excited to get this beauty from Pia (Pias Papir og Perler) in Norway who just joined the Card Chain - yay! I just love the silvery medallion filled with paper pieced flowers - so gorgeous, my photo doesn't do it justice. Pia also included some die cuts which I'll enjoy using - thanks again, Pia! I claim some Norwegian heritage on my paternal side of the family so it was fun to correspond with Pia. I mean, our pro football team is the Vikings - what does that tell you...
You have until October 6th to sign up HERE if you'd care to join the October chain - we'd love to see you! Thanks for stopping & happy World Card Making Day!!
Love your pretty card!!! And you implemented the sketch and the color challenge perfectly.
Very clever use of the sketch and how lovely to be able to send a card with dimensional flowers such a long way n the post. Very clever how they will flatten in the envelope. You are very lucky to have received that beauty from Pia too. I love it and I bet it looks even better in real life xx
Just love those flowers, Linda! Such a great frames die!
A really fresh and pretty card Linda and that was the perfect die for the sketch!
Great use of the colors and sketch! Fun way that you incorporated the sentiment.
What a lovely card you designed Linda using the colors and the sketch - so bright and happy - and the card you received is beautiful as well - such a fun challenge to participate in! xx
