Today's card was made for The Sugar Bowl's Challenge 12 which was to follow the sketch below and use the colors blue and green.

This sketch really was a challenge for me as I normally don't do a lot of layers on my cards. I struggled with putting together the different patterns, and what sizes to do all the pieces, and most of all with the strip across the bottom. It didn't turn out quite like I wanted, but I'm still happy with it, partly because I really love these papers - DCWV's Latte stack. I love the muted colors, the patterns, and the Bazzill-like texture of all the papers. Anyway, here's my version:

I used a Gorjuss image called Purrfect Friend (she has a cat, but I didn't include it here because it didn't fit), colored with Copics and cut out. I added the little flower in her hair, punched from a bit of the same patterned paper and decorated with a tiny rhinestone. I hope you like it and TFL!

Other materials used: Prima flower; rubon and organdy ribbon - Stampin' Up!; twine - Papertrey Ink; tiny flower punch - Fiskars; button and rhinestones from stash.


  1. Beautiful interpretation of the sketch! I love all your pretty details and the ribbon on the bottom looks fabulous!!

  3. What a great take on the sketch! Love the colours, your layering is fab and your image is coloured beautifully. Nice touch with the flower in her hair! Nicki.

  5. Great coloring of the sweet image and such yummy flower & papers. I think your lace turned out great for the bottom part. Lovin' the bling on the side too.

    Thanks for joining the Sugar bowl challenge and hope to see you in the next one too :)

  6. Those rhinestones really pop in the pic.

  7. So Gorjuss! Love the sketch and your card!!

  8. It may have been a struggle....but it was worth it...your card is great.

  9. Such a pretty card Maureen! I love the colors and the papers. I had fun playing the Sugar bowl as well.

    I think you should definitely give it a try at Midnight Madness Sketch, you're cards have beautiful color, and not to mention up to $500 prize they are giving up, each week's entry is one more chance at the pot.
