I was looking at the new sketch over at sketch this: cards and I really liked this week's design. I was really happy to have some time today to play around with it and see what I could do. I took the original design pretty literally and only did a bit of playing around with it, but I love how it turned out.

I started out with the brown polkadot paper and then pulled out the peachy pink DP. I wanted to do a bit of shadow under the polkadot circles so I picked the blue out of the DP and used dimensionals to make the brown stand out a bit more. I alternated where the "shadow" would be. Then I grabbed some cream that also matches the DP and used a cute little "thank you" stamp I have in blue. A little EP, some textured brown paper, some photo brads and I stared at it for a bit to decide if it was really done. I finally decided it did need a flower. I got lucky and had a large blue flower and a little pink one that matched! I picked out a shimmery yellow brad and voila!

Stamp: "thank you"
Ink: blue pigment ink from ColorBox
Papers: mint green cardstock, brown polkadot, blue cardstock, EK success beach design
Other: photo brads, shimmery yellow brad, pink fiber, dimensionals
