Laura's Sketch 17

Yay! Today is a snow day for me, so I finally had time to sit down and play with Laura's sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You.

When I first saw this layout on Monday, I had NO idea what my card might look like. Then this morning, I looked at these flowers and everything just clicked. The whole thing came together very quickly after that, and I love the results.

Stamps: Beautiful You (Verve)
Paper: PTI Aqua Mist, PTI white, vellum
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: white ep, Nestabilities Labels 1, Cuttlebug Textile Texture, Martha Stewart royal butterfly punch, corner rounder punch, flowers (Prima), pearls (Kaiserscrapbook), ribbon (Dollar Tree)

I saw this sentiment recently on another blog. It's so fitting a thought for those of use suffering through these frigid temps.

I really like your momchoromatic scheme and how you embossed the aqua panel. And how cool tha tyou had flowers that matched your scheme.
