PPA261: A Sketch Challenge

This card is for my mom in Japan.
It turned out to look like a Japanese summer kimono pattern, and I'm pleased with the results.

I was inspired by this week's PPA sketch.

I thought the combination of the bold flower and the delicate background design was interesting.


Stamp: Crazy about You, Secret Garden, Create a Cupcake
Paper: Whisper White, Pool Party, Glimmer Paper (silver)
Ink: Pool Party, Soft Sky, Daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Blender Pen

    1. Thanks so much, Maggie! I actually had a hard time getting Pool Party color coming out right in the pictures. Somehow it looks like Lost Lagoon. ;-(
