Isn't this a gorgeous colour combo?! I got so excited for this one this week, because I had the PERFECT photo for it & found the perfect sketch to match!
Colour Combos Galore projects are due in every Wednesday - nice & easy to remember - but the earlier you get yours in the better as there is a great community there & you'll get lots of visits!
Stuck? Sketches! is a new one to me but I loved the look of this sketch with the giant photo - as often I like to showcase a really nice shot.
Not a lot to say about this one because it's so simple! Luckily I had some really old My Mind's Eye paper that was the perfect colour match (Colour challenges are a great way to use up your older stash...)
Used my Martha Stewart punches here - have never used this butterfly punch before because it is "the wrong way round" in my opinion! I usually punch underneath the photo, not above it - and then the butterflies would be upside down?!? Yes I know I could just cut a strip & turn it around...
Hand-journaled again as this is the only place it would fit & strip journaling would have looked too bitty...ooooh for a large scale printer...one day...
Made that little organza flower out of the same ribbon I have used along the width of the layout. I placed the printed strip on top of the sheer ribbon so as to hide the double-sided tape.
