A Sweet Sunday Sketch meets an Inkspiration Colour Challenge

Hello, Hello!!!.. Hope you are all well. It is of course time for Karen's lovely Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and this week I used the colours from the lovely Keesh's Inkspiration Colour Challenge.

Oohhh what a treat both challenges were. Karen's sketch is just AWESOME... so many cards you can make with this one, and it's a nice and simple sketch too... so why not pop on over and have a go!!! Oh and Keesh's colours... yummy... BRIGHT.. but YUMMY!

Keesh's colours were Pink Passion, Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery and Whisper White. Now I've warned you that this may be VERY BRIGHT... so take a wee moment to prepare your eyes. OK you ready???

Here it is:-

And here is the picture of Karen's lovely sketch:-

Gorgeous Sketch isn't it?

I used Pink Passion as the base then cut some square using my square punch in Pumpkin Pie and Certainly Celery DSP (both of these unfortunately retired). Then I cut another larger squere in Pink Passion and one in Whisper White to adhere to the middle. My flower is 'Hand made' and boy was it fun and Sooooooo simple. If you want to see how to make these gorgeous little creations yourself, then pop on over and visit Dawn... she's so very clever and her little tutorial is FANTASTIC. Oh dear I got a bit excited there, so, my flower is made by tearing circles of Pumpkin Pie, Pink Passion, Certainly Celery card stock and then I added a button to the centre of it and attached it with some linen thread. The leaves are also just cut out freehand using some spare Certainly Celery DSP.
Oh and not to forget a teensy weeny bit of stamping... the sentiment... is from the lovely Short and Sweet set and I stamped it in Whisper White.

So there you go. My two challenges in one. Hope you like.

Thanks for stopping by.

Wow Sarah-Jane. I also saw Dawn's tutorial but haven't tried one of the flowers yet as wasn't sure what colours to use. Your flower has worked out perfect with these bright colours. Great card

Super cute card! I loved Dawn's tutorial too! I've got little flowers sitting right here on my desk just waiting to be added to a card! I also used the same idea and created a bird. I'll post pics tomorrow hopefully!
