VLV September Week 1 Sketch
The Celery green in the DP was a wonderful springboard to work from. The lower portion of the Serenity leaf image became my flower stems (just inked up the bottom part of the stamp), and the flowers are made from punches and popped up. Black became my accent colour because there was a bit of black on the top shelf in the picture - yeah!! Had to pull out my Swiss Dots embossing folder to add some dimension as I haven't used it recently - for me anyway - and winged it with the border punch on the corners.
The two circles on the side of the sketch gave me a bit of grief so I added some half pearls to each side in lieu hoping to dodge the challenge police yet again - gotta live on the edge I say LOL! A little black butterfly finished things off perfectly. For some reason, I just love this card. Always nice when your own card makes you smile :)
Monday begins our first full week of school. Body clocks, sleep times, extracurricular activities, and everyone's schedules are basically in place so we should have smooth sailing from here on in. And yes, I am loving my mommy time :) Have a great day!
