Tangerine Blooms


So, I was using Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #62 for inspiration, which you can see HERE, and I sort of stuck to her sketch but I kind of eliminated one of the main elements - that semi-circle on the bottom right of the card.  I liked the tall skinny card-size so I stuck with that, but what you see above is what I ended up with after playing around for a little while.  Hope you like it!!

PS - Don't forget to try out my very first Combat Boot Challenge (CBC01)!!!!  You can see it HERE and on Tuesday one of you will be featured on my post with the links to the projects each of you submitted.

Stamps:  Eastern Blooms, Thank You Kindly
Paper:  So Saffron and Whisper White CS, Haiku Designer Series Paper
Ink:  Tangerine Tango
Accessories:  Tangerine Tango Striped 5/8" ribbon
