FMS#243 and Inkspirational#112

Hi, everyone!!!




Had some time during the weekend to make a card to link at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge!!!!  The sketch for the week:


and the card I've made:




B&W striped paper from Kaisercraft.
Flower and flourish dies from MFT.   
Butterfly stamp from PTI.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.



Sandie has just pointed out to me that my card fits the challenge at Inspirational, too, where you have to use red on your card.  I will be linking my card there, too.  This is a new challenge to me and I will definitely be playing there in future again!!!!!





That will be it for today!!!!  Thanks for spending some time with me!!!!

Such a gorgeous card. I love the focal cluster you created, and it is all the more stunning in contrast to your bold black and white striped background.

Hoi Petra,
We waren tegelijk met de challenge bezig! Jouw kaart is weer prachtig! Mooi de tegenstelling van de kleuren. En wat bijzonder dat je kaartjes maakt voor en winkel die ze verkoopt. Je maakt dus veel meer dan dat je laat zien. Dank je wel voor je leuke reacties op mijn kaartje. Dat waardeer ik enorm.
Lieve groetjes,
GerJanne

It's like a zebra with a colorful flower tattoo! I love it! I cannot imagine how cold you are these days, while we are so hot and VERY HUMID! YIKES! we are on other sides of the word completely, and yet, we share the love of nature, and of each other - what a blessing! Well, dear Petra, not sure what got me into all that, but so be it. LOL Your card is delightful, as always, and employs such fantastic use of nature and geometrics! Love your special style! hugs, de

Absoluut pragtig. Love die helder kleure hier en daar. 'n Sonnige maar koue wintersdag hier in Jukskei Park.
Mooi bly

Hello, Petra! Your flowers are so pretty - your die-cutting looks amazing! I love the black and white background too!

Pat said...

This is very pretty Petra and I love the black and white stripes and the interesting way you have cut the flower into the top layer and using this under the left side of the flower and letting the stripes show through the negative space. I adore the brightly coloured flower and the pretty green and black leafy flourishes too. Really stylish! x
