Regarding Dahlias

Good morning, and happy Saturday!  August's sketches are by Elizabeth Harris, and I am actually back on track.  Yippee Skippie!  Here is the Utah Diva's sketch for August 10, UDISC253.  You can find all of the cards and designers here

I'm combining the sketch with a color challenge from Fab Friday.

Here's what I came up with.  Obviously, I turned the sketch to a horizontal format.  Doesn't this have a wonderful, soft look?

Details ~

  • Paper ~ Whisper White, Crumb Cake
  • Ink ~Crumb Cake, Crisp Cantaloupe, So Saffron
  • Stamps ~ Regarding Dahlias
  • Accessories ~ Pistachio Pudding ruffle stretch trim, sponge daubers
Regarding Dahlias was one of the first sets that caught my eye in the new catalog.  You usually see it in bolder, more dramatic colors, but as you can see, it looks lovely in pastels as well.  What do you think?

Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for stopping by.
