I just realized I will need to get a birthday card in the mail this week to a long-time friend who lives in Florida. The weekly sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #434 provided the perfect inspiration. This challenge runs from Monday, August 16, through Sunday evening, August 22, 2021.
If you notice claw or teeth marks on my fussy-cut floral image, that is my cat's signature. I found my boy, Sluggo, playing with the image but I managed to rescue it before it was destroyed.
I think blue and yellow can be pretty in a card design and this paper collection did not disappoint! There is even a tiny bit of green and pink although I did not focus on the pink.
I added a panel of blue patterned paper, then a die-cut panel of yellow to the white card base. Next came a smaller rectangle of patterned paper matted with pastel green cardstock. Finally, I added a fussy cut blossom with lemons and leaves using thin foam tape. I also supplemented the shading in the image with a light touch using two Copic markers then the pearls were added. As usual, I decorated the inside with coordinating paper and colors.
Don't forget to check out this challenge at AHSC434!
