This week's CPS challenge was a new twist: we picked any one of the past 79 sketches and made a card and something other than a card. The card part was simple enough; I had some new sentiments that I wanted to work around from Verve Visual's new Notes of Prayer. Sketch 41 seemed to fill the bill nicely for the shape of my sentiment. I used Anna, Audrey, and Klara from Cosmo Cricket's Dutch Girl Collection as background papers because of their soothing colors and warm feel.
For the flower centers on the Anna paper, I used White Opal Liquid Pearls. (To get rid of the little point on top, give the underneath side of the paper a little thump.) I sewed the strips of Audrey and Klara onto a Spellbinders Scalloped Long Rectangle die cut and used a Ribbon Tags Trio die for the sentiment, stamped in PaperTrey's Pure Poppy ink--my new favorite red ink because it is so rich and deep! Self-adhesive pearls are the ivory ones, and twill is PaperTrey's Pure Poppy.
It was fun to go back through all of the old CPS sketches and just find one to work with; I really should do so more often to get out of my layout ruts. Have a lovely day!
