Hero Arts August Sketch Challenge

I have had some time today to play around with my card stuff :) I have seen a lot of great cards in the Flickr Hero Arts group for the Hero Arts August sketch challenge.

Here is my take on one of the sketches:

One of the exciting things for me while putting this together is that I had picked up 3 or 4 packs of Paula Deen 6x6 papers at Michael's in their $1 bin and I used the blue striped background from one of the packs! Thought that was pretty cool! The orange panel is from Studio Calico Memoir Collection. You can't tell from the picture but I have the panel raised and used some Recollections Foam Adhesive "Strips". They come in a pack of strips 1/4" on one side and 1/2" on the other side. They are 5 1/2' long. That was another surprise purchase accident for me too!

The flower is one of my Hero Arts favorite: CL374 and colored with copics BG07 and BG05.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts CL380 (I cut off the "hello" from the Just saying hello sentiment)

I used Broken China around the edges of the blue striped paper and Wild Honey around the orange pattern paper panel.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Blessings to you!
