Craftmad March Sketch

This is the March sketch for Craftmad - you can find other peoples take on this sketch in our Pinterest album here.

A couple of lovely ladies have their birthdays in April, so I thought the sketch would help me on my way to creating cards for them.  Both love purple and I just had an urge to use orange with it.  I found these lovely patterned papers that I thought worked well together to create the background.  The flower is made up of a doily which I cut into sections and coloured orange with my copic pens, a fabric flower, paper patterned flower from a packet someone kindly gave me years ago and lastly the yellow flower is flower I crocheted many years ago.  All held together with a pearl split pin.  Finished the card with gold birthday stickers.

My second card I used the other halves of the patterned paper.  Coloured up this new Graphic 45 stamp I received at Christmas time.  I think the flowers are meant to be roses but I was thinking blackeyed susans when I coloured them.  Finished with a little purple bling in the corners.

Thanks for visiting today.

Hope no-one catches you with an April fools joke. :-)
