Aqua Sketch

Hello everyone,

Today's card is based on two challenges, Techno Stamper's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge provided a very interesting sketch to follow and the Pink Elephant challenge was to use the colour aqua. Given the idea that came to me when I saw the sketch, aqua was pretty easy.

The paper is all Stampin' Up - Bermuda Bay, Whisper White and Shimmery White. The background layer is textured with Sizzix Pattern 1. The image is Hero Arts Starburst Lace and is highlighted with a Peggy's Pretties. The sentiment is Stampin' Up Well Scripted. The ribbon is Stampin' Up polka dot grosgrain.

I think this is one of my favourite Mother's Day cards so far. I love the colour combination of Bermuda Bay and white. It is so clean and crisp. I also love the Starburst Lace stamp. It is so very, very striking. I suspect I'll be tempted to overuse it.

I hope you enjoy and come back to SPI again soon.



  1. Wow, that is so pretty, love that lace circle. You made me laugh out loud about the "interesting sketch". Don't know what I was thinking but I sure like everyone's samples. Thanks for playing along you did a wonderful job! Beautiful card.

  2. Pretty! And I love the colors . . . white and Bermuda Bay is so striking!
