Miss You...

I'm changing up my posting days this week, so instead of wishing you a happy Monday, it's "Happy Tuesday!"  Today's card is straying a bit from the soft, feminine colors of late to the strong, bold shades of navy and yellow, mixed with a bit of soft blue.  It's a combo I haven't used for a while, and I wanted to play with something a little bit different.

In addition, last month there was a fun sketch challenge here, at Passion Cartes Creatives, that I had hoped to participate in, but life got in the way and I wasn't able to get it started in time. So I filed it away for later use, and brought it out when I made this card...

Here's Sandrine's sketch that it's based on...

I couldn't resist adding in two lilac blossoms among all the blue and creamy yellow flowers...just a pop of the unexpected to make you really take notice...LOL

And so happy I finally had the perfect card to use the dark blue rosebuds that I've had in my stash for so long now...

The distressed chickenwire pattern on the yellow oval background was made using modeling paste applied in a light and random manner using a template...

Patterned papers:   Glitz Vintage Blue collection,  Glitz Pretty in Pink collection (music print)
Dies:   Memory Box Tiffany Frame;   Spellbinders Opulent Ovals,   Classic Scalloped Ovals Small,   Classic Ovals Small;
