The Challenge #25 {Welcome to Anita!}

Welcome to The Challenge! Every other week we bring you a colour/sketch combo! You are welcome to combine the colours and sketch or just use one part of the challenge! It is totally up to you! The design team have created inspiring samples to get you into the crafting mood! Come and join us!

Sketch Dimensions
(this is only a suggestion)
Card Base: 4.25 x 5.5"
Gray Flag: 1.25 x 3.75"
White Flag: 1 x 3"
Oval: Any Shape
Butterfly: Any Shape

For my card I used one of my favourite Verve stamps called Lean On Me-I love those blooms! I also used a sentiment from Bloom & Grow. Keeping my design fairly simple, I die cut my side "flags" with some dies from MFT and used a Martha Stewart doily to add a feminine touch. My flower is coloured much more delicately than it appears in the photo...but my colouring is also a tad off these there you go! I used both the colours and the sketch this week! As you can see I put my card together a bit differently than the sketch and that is long at the sketch is visible!
