Lauren's Saturday Sketch..

.. on Wednesday.

This card uses Lauren's Saturday Sketch. I love, love, love my main image but the rest of the card kind of fell a bit flat.

I used PTI Beautiful Blooms with Lemon Tart and Summer Sunrise, love those colors together. I sponged a bit of antique linen distress ink all over the two pieces. That was my favorite part of the card. Stamped Friend over the single flower with Burnt Umber.

There is a leaf pattern stamped on the brown card base but it doesn't show up, even IRL. I sponged some ink onto vellum to go along the side of the main image as well. Had to add some ribbon to break up the brown a bit. Like I said love the main image but the rest could use some work. Going to have to think on it for a while. I am trying not to obsess quite so much over my cards. I could spend days trying to make it perfect, that isn't much fun though and usually I end up not liking the results any better.

I just got the next Scrapbooks and Beyond Card Kit on Tuesday and will have some samples soon.
