Technostamper's Monday Lunchtime Sketch #60

Wowza...this was a tough one. I finally think that I'm okay with the card I came up with but I know that there's a better card in my head for this sketch. I just haven't found it!

I began with a color combo I had written down weeks ago. I intended to use Pink Pirouette, Perfect Plum and Kiwi Kiss. The Kiwi got dismissed as I worked. The card I saw with that combo was gorgeous so I'll have to try again later!

The flowers came from the Pretties Kit. I dyed them using my ink pad and a sponge dauber.

Use the sketch and challenge yourself to come up with your own ideas. Click HERE to see MJ's post and you can play along, too!

Very pretty! I seem to always go in to making a card with one color scheme and it gets scrapped (today was a perfect example of that!).

Great card!

Very pretty, love the colors. You sound like me, I wonder what feels so wrong about this sketch, lol. I think you did a great job.
