Paper Players Sketch Challenge


Happy Tuesday Peeps!
today I am sharing a card I made using the challenge this week on the The Paper Players Blog.

Here is the sketch:

I usually shy away from these kind of sketches, the kind with small repeating elements. Even tho I LOVE do sketch challenges, this kind generally make the hairs on the back of my neck curl!! LOL!!
But after thinking about this one for a bit, I thought some pretty daisies might look cute.
I did vary it just a bit, by not putting my flowers in a straight line I was able to get the three on there and still have room for the sentiment at the bottom AND keep my card a standard size.


I used crumb cake, daffodil delight and whisper white for my colors. I added a bit of green in the leaves with some pear pizzazz.
I think the card is pretty self explanatory so I am not going into much detail but if you have a question just shoot me an e-mail. I am coming down with a bug, coughing, sneezing, snotting and chilling so I am out of here.
HAPPY STAMPING!!  
Vicki
