While the girls were playing outside yesterday afternoon I created a card for my friend Vera who is celebrating her birthday today. I followed the 2 Sketches 4 You Bonus Sketch designed by my wonderful friend Kay. I am a huge fan of Kay's work. She has a fabulous style and has a great eye for detail and combining colors and patterns. If you're not familiar with her work yet you should really visit her blog. The scrumptious blue ribbon used on this card was bought at M&J Trimming in New York. On our first day in New York last October we met up with Kay and went ribbon shopping together. Using the ribbon reminds me of the fabulous time we had in New York. Eric and I would love to go back there....soon. Here's my take on Kay's bonus sketch.
