I wanted to keep the colors and the design very neutral given the type of card it is.Other than the base card( 5 x 7), everything came out of my scrap paper bin. The background color is Arianna Green, the dark is Chocolate, and the print is also from the Ariana paper pack(retired) from Close to My Heart . The Colonial White cardstock was run through the Big Kick with a soft design that I always feel looks serene and suitable for this kind of card. I inked everything with Chocolate. The sentiment was computer generated, and I finshed it off with three antique gold Durables, also left overs.
Even though this type of card is difficult to do, especially for a freind or neighbour, when you have a great sketch to inspire you, you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.
I do hope you come join us sometime for our challenges at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge, and that you make sure you use all your bits and pieces !!
