CAS Colours & Sketches #179

A new sketch challenge begins today at CAS Colours & Sketches. Think you're going to enjoy this one!

I needed a wedding anniversary card for one of my sons and got cracking with the sketch and came up with this:

Flowers are always appropriate for anniversaries and if I know my son it's probably the closest my daughter-in -law will come to receiving any.

I know there are two little tags at the top of the rectangular block on the sketch, but I figured the double petals of the flower looked a bit like two elements - well that's my story anyway. Have I convinced you?

Stamps: Uniko, Beautiful Blooms II, Nature's Treasures II, Simply Said
Inks: SU, pear pizzazz; Memento, angel pink, rose bud 

So over to you now - what will you do with this sketch? The rest of the DT and our fabulous Guest Designer for June, Fiona, have cards waiting to inspire you over at CC&S. Do go check them out.

Thanks for dropping by today, I do so love that folks spend time looking and reading my blog.  And keep crafting!

  1. This is simply beautiful Jane. Love how you used the two petals on the bloom to represent the two tiny rectangles on the sketch. Crisp, clean and beautifully summery. Hugs Bev x

  4. Love the "peeping" petals, and the design interpretation.

  5. Beautiful! Love your take on the sketch with the flower peeking out!

  6. Such a pretty floral take on the sketch! I like how you've popped up the one blossom for some dimension. I hope your son and daughter-in-law share many happy years together.

  7. I'm convinced Jane. :) I hope that your son reads your blog and sends some actual flowers to your daughter in law! Liz x
