A Different Musing to that Intended

inside of card

I set out with completely different colours in mind: green, red or blue in fact. It was the striped paper that caused the mauve to reappear - since I wanted to use stripes both horizontally & vertically it was this or various shades of black through to white. I still marvel at how a card makes itself as I work on it.

The card follows Sketch Challenge #3 given by Claudia Rosa on the Whiff of JoyTutorials & Inspirations Blog. 

As before the shrink plastic flowers were made from punched white shrink plastic with Stickles Glitter Glue for the flower centres.
