Spring Fling Sketch Challenge

The CLASSroom is celebrating spring with a sketch challenge. You know me and how I love sketches!

I thought I'd start with some patterned paper and see what I could build around it. I found some paper from the Basic Grey Eva collection that I liked. When I saw it, I pulled out PTI's Rustic Branches. I'm sure you'll see why!

The paper was a wonderful match for the wreath of leaves in the set. I stamped the branch from the set in Fresh Snow onto Kraft. The flowers are from Butterfly Kisses and Borders and Corners Heart. They layered perfectly and resembled the flowers in the patterned paper. The edges of the Kraft layers were inked with Fresh Snow ink. I layered this onto a piece of SS White and inked the edges with Antique Linen.

The wreath of leaves was stamped onto Kraft and cut out. This was layered onto a punched out scalloped circle that was inked with some Antique Linen. The Nana sentiment is from Women of Life Additions - perfect for my Nana for Mother's Day! The satin ribbon is Sweet Blush, topped with a Hibiscus Burst button.

Thanks for stopping by!
