I chose a more muted pallette than the inspiration photo, using Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist, and Ocean Tides.
I used Turning a New Leaf stamps, Ocean Tide ink, and Aqua Mist cs for the background. Using this tutorial from SCS, I used Lemon Tart cs to create the pleat; then I added a little rick rack trim in the middle. I used the Linen Impression Plate with Soft Stone cs for the background of the focal point with a pinking edge peeking out from the right. Bloom Builders #3 die and Turning a New Leaf dies create a floral accent for the sentiment from Healing Touch.
I used RetroSketches #17 for my card design. This recently discovered blog is a great sketch challenge blog.
Be sure to check out Nichole Heady's blog for the list of participants and links to fabulous cards.
Thanks in advance to the participants for your wonderfully creative inspiration.
