Guest designer for Paperworks Company sketch challenge

Such an exciting week for me ... I was chosen as this week's Guest Designer for Paperworks Company's sketch challenge. I was given the sketch earlier this week and very quickly decided what I wanted to do with it (in fact, I made the card the same day!). The oval shape reminded me of a lovely stamped image that I had coloured awhile ago but never used. At first I was going to make a standard card but then decided that it would be fun to convert this into a split front card. Here's what I came up with:

The image is a freebie from Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine - if you've never picked up a copy of this magazine then give it a try because most issues include a 2-page spread of free images that you can scan, copy and then use over and over. I coloured the image with Copic markers and then added some drops of Glossy Accents on the petals to give the impression of dewdrops. For the card base itself, the main paper is Coordinations "White Wash" with Basic Grey patterned paper for the trim and interior.

I have to chuckle a bit at posting this Spring card. I live in a very temperate area of Canada where we rarely get snow, yet what did I wake up to this morning? About 6" of snow! So I may be getting a bit ahead of myself with this Spring card, but I guess there's no harm in dreaming.
