card patterns sketch #27
Hi all!! Here's my take on the cardpatterns sketch #27. I went for an almost monochromatic scheme here. I wanted to used my summer sunrise buttons and it just went from there. The colors on this card remind me of a cake my Mom made for a couple that had just got married years ago. I was only about four or five but I never forgot that cake!! It was cream frosting with all these little sunflowers all over it. Don't know what made me think of that!!
All supplies are from papertrey ink. I had to use my everyday button bits... hope you are not sick of it yet but boy do I love this set!! The summer sunrise buttons are a little peachier (? is that a word?) than the usual summer sunrise color but I like the bit of contrast. I added a bit of diamond stickles to a couple of my buttons to give a little extra pep. I stamped the large flourish of the fancy flourishes set in vintage cream on the background before I adhered the image. You can't really see it in the photo but I really like the subtle effect of it. Well I'm off to go work on a few more things!!
Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
