Deep Purple

I may have mentioned before but I'm so loving the Sketch Challenge at from 'From the Heart Stamps'. I think it may have something to do with the fact that they appear to be liking my cards, yippee!  Anyway, I was pleased with this weeks sketch but I didn't have any of their stamps that would cover what I had in mind.  Shame! I would just have to go and find one in their store.  Shh, Do Not Tell the Hubby!

Once I had what I wanted it seemed to take me ages to colour them in and even longer to cut them out and layer them up and this is what I came up with.

This is the original sketch

I have to admit, now I've made the card it looks totally different from the original sketch.  I will admit to using a rectangle instead of a square and I did use the cut out butterfly instead of the circle (well it is me, it wouldn't be one of mine without some fussy cutting) but I think I spaced my flowers too far apart.  As the backing paper has stitching on already I didn't add any string or ribbon.
Oh well, I like it and I hope you do too.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Very creative Dawn to use the flowers as the trio sketch element. I love your creativity and thinking outside the sketch box so to speak. Thanks so much for sharing with us at From The Heart Stamps sketch challenge and look forward to your next project. Take care.

  2. I can see how the sketch inspired your card. I love that you switched up the elements, but maintained the feel and I love the purple! Thanks for joining us at From the Heart Stamps i {heart} sketches with a tWist!
