Getting Farm Fresh With A Waltzingmouse

The new sketch challenge over at the Waltzingmouse sketch blog is to make a set of small cards.   When I saw the challenge I knew it was the perfect for the current Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger:  Farm Fresh.  I drew my inspiration mainly from the color combo (to my eye orange and bright blue) and somewhat from the pattern that runs along one side of the towel.  I guess that is what inspiration is all about... seeing where it takes you.    But doesn't that towel just make you think of the freshness a spring day or a jar of flowers??



I used a medium sized flower from the Heartfelt Creations Flora Grande 2 set and two sentiments from the WMS set Frame It to make my set of "thank you" notes.  I had thought I would go with some buttons on the cards, as well, but they just didn't fit.  So I went with a few rhinestones instead.  I took a bit of liberty with the sketch, but, again, I suppose that is what inspiration is all about... seeing where it takes you.

Thanks for taking a peek...  hope you find some inspiration today!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI White; SU! Pumpkin Pie & Tempting Turquoise; Ink:  SU! Pumpkin Pie & Palette Cote' Azure; Stamps:  HC Flora Grande 2 & WMS Frame It; Hero Arts gems
