I think the frigid weather we have been experiencing these past weeks has given me <creative> brain freeze. And, to be honest, it's really bothering me.
Sure, I've been doing my regular pinning on Pinterest, as well as perusing others' blogs, but nothing lately has thrilled me too much. At least, not enough that I had the urge to do my own take on anything in particular.
Until I saw this week's sketch challenge from the Paper Players! After looking through the samples the design team had created, I was positively EMPOWERED to do one of my own:
The colors, even though the photos don't show it accurately, are Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and Island Indigo, with the centers of the flowers being a bit darker by using an Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker to give them a bit more definition.
Although I love the card "closed" as shown above, the sentiment on the little pull-out tag is really cute too.
Did you notice the row of three paper dots above the flowers? Well, I wanted to echo the dot look by adding one to the tag too:
I love how the dimension and texture show up so well on this photo:
Thanks, Paper Players, for giving me a much-needed kick in the pants!
