Unscripted Sketches #73

I managed to create a card based on the new sketch from Unscripted Sketches just in time. Tomorrow a new sketch will be posted, but I really wanted to play along with this week's color challenge. I didn't have any time earlier this week, but this morning I had no appointments so I spent some time in my messy scrap room. Gosh....I really need to clear out that room. Time to do some major purging! Anyway, the challenge at Unscripted Sketches is to create a monochromatic card based on Sketch #73. I used patterned papers from October Afternoon's The Thrift Shop collection that match really well with Papertrey Ink's Aqua Mist color. Here's my take on the sketch...



Supplies: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Rustic White) | Patterned paper: October Afternoon (The Thrift Shop) | Pearls, foam dots: Zva Creative (PE02CB101, AD01CB101) | Twine: May Arts | Button: Papertrey Ink (Aqua Mist) | Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Round & Round 2009 Anniversary Set, All Booked Up) | Felt Flower: Ecru #3 (my own store) | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Mat Stack 3 Die, Eyelet Lace Border Die, Beautiful Blooms II #3 Die Collection), EK Success 1.75" Circle punch, 2" Scalloped Circle punch | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Aqua Mist, Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo), Versafine (Vintage Sepia)

I used the littlest felt flower of the Ecru #3 set on this card. I offer a 10% discount on all felt Build-a-Flower sets this weekend. Use discount code FLOWERS10 at checkout in the comments field and you'll receive the discount. The 10% discount applies to felt flowers only, and is valid until Midnight CET on Sunday September 26th.

I now also have sets of felt leaves in four shades of green in my store. The leaves go really well with the felt flowers and make a great embellishment. You can find the felt leaves here.

Have a wonderful day!
