Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 69

I'm getting this one just under the wire!  I love playing with the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, but I have to admit this week was hard!  I have very few Halloween and Thanksgiving stamps, so I had to take another tack.  
My card was inspired in part by this card by Iwona Palamountain.  She makes the loveliest cards and that particular color scheme really appeals to me.  The blooms of the Asian Gardens are perfect for this card with the 3 sizes of blooms.  
The bouquet wrapping was stamped ever so slightly with white polka dots and the background was put through the ol' Cuttlebug with a canvas impression plate.  Finished it off with some twine and a large sentiment from the Join Us set, and I'm done.  
Not your typical autumn card, but lots of fun to make!  Thanks for visiting!

  1. How beautiful, love your take on the sketch, those flowers look lovely in this special bouquet!

  2. A very nice take on a very difficult sketch. I tend to interpret them literally so I am always impressed with anyone who can turn these into something else. Fabulous job!!

  3. I absolutely love your take on the challenge - the bouquet of flowers is so bright and cheerful - love the little sakura flowers!

  4. What a gorgeous, fresh card. You have really nailed a great 3D look.

  5. JJ this is SUCH a wonderful card! I just love the whole idea, and the flowers are stamped and cut so perfectly. The color scheme is gorgeous, and I just love the little extras like the dots on the cone, the twine, and the impressed background!

  6. Love your take on the sketch, really pretty card. I kinda 'cheated' with mine, the hat was a bit of a stretch for me. Fab job!

  7. I love it! The colours are so cheerful, and the little twine wrapping on the bouquet is sweet :)


I'd love to hear from you! Aloha!
