Feelin' Blue

For some reason, when I looked at today's sketch challenge, my mind went straight to Bashful Blue. I decided to make a soft, feminine card.

I wanted to use one of my new stamps from the Wisconsin trip, so I chose this vine from the Trees, Birds, & Messages set from Hero Arts. I added a bit of glitter to the image, then added the sheer ribbon, which has a nice shimmer to it.

Only after I had finished the card did I realize that the ribbon was a bit too wide for the sketch--oops! Oh, well, I'm always a stickler for the measurements on these sketches, so one small goof is allowed every now and then, right?

Stamps: Trees, Birds, & Messages (Hero Arts)
Paper: Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Prints Pack & Summer Picnic dp (SU)
Ink: Bashful Blue
Accessories: clear glitter pen (Spica), ribbon (Dollar Tree), Dew Drops, dimensionals

Beautiful card, I love anything blue, and you've captured the perfect feeling for this card!

"Sketch" to me means "up for interpretation." I think you did a great job. I sense a monochromatic trend coming on...
