I needed to make a card for someone who likes purple and planned to finally get to that over the week-end......however, things haven't gone to plan over the week-end at all!!! I was playing softball and among grazes and bruises, I've managed to sprain the little finger on my right hand. Today it is swollen and absolutely black! :( Still I thought I'd attempt this week's sketch challenge and although one panel is a little crooked I think I managed pretty well.
I started with a Very Vanilla base, topped with Elegant Eggplant (pierced), some pale green bazzill and some Kaisercraft 'Garden Arabesque' paper. I wrapped some chocolate ribbon around it and made a flat bow, topping it with three flowers and a chocolate pearl (also Kaisercraft). The two other paper panels are more of the same range of paper layered with EE. The main panel is VV cut with the Label 4 dies. Both the image and sentiment come from SU's 'Friends 24-7' set. The bird has been stamped in Close to Cocoa, coloured with Creamy Caramel and Mellow Moss and cut and popped up. The sentiment has been stamped in Violet versacolor. Finished off by adding a couple of chocolate pearls to the corners and a tiny one for the bird's eye.
