Several of my coworkers got together last week and bought me a beautiful plant for the passing of my uncle. I knew that I wanted to make them some Thank You cards. Then my friend Nicole told me about the challenge at Mojo Monday. I had never made a card based on a sketch before, but I am quite pleased with how it turned out. I will also be entering this card in the challenge at Paper Issues, using scallops.
The brown scalloped rectangle is from Graphically Speaking. It was cut at 4.25x2 in.
The yellow rectangle is also from Graphically Speaking. It was cut at 3.75x1.5 in.
The blue shape that the sentiment is stamped on is from Calligraphy Collection. It was cut at 1.5x2.25in. I had to cut the image in half (This worked well since I was making several cards anyway and could use both halves.) and then trim the ends so they were flat and at 1.5 in.
The branch and flowers are from Gypsy Wanderings. The branch was cut at 4.25 width (linked to height). The flowers were at 2.10 width (linked to height). They are perhaps a bit big, but if they were smaller they would have been difficult to work with. I added a dot of glitter glue to the center of the flowers.
