Got the Blues and Greens.. SFF Sketch Card

Welcome to Sketch Frenzy Friday!  Today’s sketch was designed by design team member Tammy Baldwin, I hope you like it and will play along with the team this week!

I’m in love with the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper… especially the blue/green floral pattern!  I’m normally not a blue person, preferring greens, or black, or tan… so I find my self quite surprised as I continue to create cards with a blue and green theme!

Today’s card features one of the new beveled windowpanes from the Occasional Mini Catalog (page 12).  It didn’t really photograph well, but if you look closely, you can see I fed the Marina Mist Taffeta through the slot in the top of the beveled windowpane before knotting it.


LOL this card was a true work in progress!  I followed the sketch, but kept adding more and more… almost not knowing when to stop!  Here’s the sketch:


As you can see, I got most of the basic elements into my card, but had to stop at some point.  I really love the deeply grooved texture provided by the Big Shot Machine and Textured Embossing Folders.. and couldn’t resist using two of them in today’s card!

Beautiful!!! Blues & greens are so nice together. I don't know why when I was growing up one of the 'rules' of clothing was you shouldn't wear blue & green together. How more of nature can one get! I love the designer paper behind the dark blue strip. Actually I love it all!!!

The blue and green look beautiful together! Love all the different embossing folders you used - and, how you used it on your flower, too!

This looks terrific. It defyes the old adage .. blue and green should never be seen without a colour in between' ..

Wow! What a beautiful card! I too am a fan of the blue and green together and totally love the textured strip of cardstock on the side. And what can I say about that flower, except gorgeous!
