This card qualifies for two challenges. First, it is based on the sketch by Julee Tilman for the Meet The Verve Divas part 7. I really love her sketches, and it’s about time that I actually made a card from one! It also qualifies for Color Throwdown #7 where the colours for this week are Bashful Blue, Apricot Appeal and Ballet Blue. I used the closest papers I had, as well as dark brown as the neutral colour to ‘bind it’ together.
The apricot rectangle was stamped and embossed with clear ink and embossing powder, and the sentiment is also embossed. I just love this designer paper – I have been looking for an excuse to use it on a card 😀
