Under the daisy's mocking spell

It’s Wednesday Sketch challenge time over at the Outlawz and I have a card featuring another image from this month’s awesome sponsor, Oak Pond Creations, on my card, this is Georgia’s Daisies.

And the sketch this week.

I’ve flipped the sketch and added in some lace for my zig-zag elements as my ability to cut paper to that shape is rather limited.  I needed something to help me pull the whole card together, I’m not used to non-people images so I checked out the various challenges around to see what inspiration I could find.  Sweet Stampin’ had a beautiful photo up and it was just what I needed to direct my search for the perfect paper and embellies.  I’ve taken the soft lavender colours from the photo as my inspiration, including Smooching my butterfly embellies to soften up their colour.

I’ve also played along with the bingo card at Fussy and Fancy, as I had lace and a flower image I also added in some Fran-tage around my image to get my three in a row.  To help add interest to the card I’ve also made it a gate fold with the image the ‘latch’ or overlapping part.  As it a gate fold I’m also entering my card in the current challenge at Vandicrafts’ Artistry.

Hope to see you playing along over at the Outlawz for this week’s sketch challenge.
