Interesting sketch challenge today! As you've probably noticed, I did a bit of finagling on mine, lol. The elements are there...just rearranged. I flipped it so that my 3 edges go up & down and changed the shape a bit of my circle.
The images are brand spanking new from Our Daily Bread designs and all of the paper is dp. I used the combo of chalk and pigment ink to get the color and coverage I wanted since the image is a silhouette and those can be tricky. And I only used a portion of the die and the left and bottom sides are just the corners of the paper.
The flower was made w/ 3 of the papers and I used a Cuttlebug flower quilling die and just glued the strips together and rolled. I added some Sizzix die cut leaves and used a QK scallop border die on 2 of my long panels. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
Thanks so much for looking! Closeups and links for the ODBD blog hop are on my blog: The Write Stuff
