Isabella's Sketchbook - Kioshi With Love.


Hello,

I think I'm back on track......... or perhaps I shouldn't have said that! Anyway, I made a card for Isabella's Challenge and this week her new design team was announced with some of their beautiful projects to inspire us. My understanding was that as long as one of Isabella's images were used the challenge is open.

Earlier in the week Isabella featured a tag on her blog, not sure it's the same but I had one too, so my decision was made!

This image reminded me of Asian styled flowers so I've teamed it with Basic Grey's Kioshi paper pad, picking a plain and this beautiful muted coloured dp. My tag was coloured in this same muted style using Prisma's and OMS, then cut out. I've sponged around the edge with antique linen distress ink and stamped the sentiment from Annabelle Stamps.

Some punched daisy fans, ribbon and retro flowers with gem centres and the card's complete. I hope you like it.

Tomorrow I have my card for the 'Roses' April challenge, if you've got time I'd love it if you called back.

Have a great week end.
