Hi there! We finally got some much needed rain today which not only was reason to celebrate but also made for a perfect excuse to get in some crafty time. I've got two cards for three challenges. First up I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and took inspiration from Anita's card at Muse. I love the drama Anita's black flowers against the red background pattern. It's bold and fabulous! I used some Authentique papers for the two panels on the sketch, heat embossed and fussy cut the Altenew flower and added some Nuvo dots around the Altenew sentiment.
Cardstock: (White) Papertrey Ink, (Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper: (Carefree Collection 6x6) Authentique
Stamps: (Flower from Hennah Elements, Sentiment from Many Thanks) Altenew
Inks: (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukeniko

This card uses the colours from CAS Colours & Sketches. I happened to have the Soft Sky die cut square on my desk so decided to try and use it for the challenge. I used a Calypso Coral marker to add some subtle detail to the Essentials by Ellen flower petals. I also die cut some extra outlines to put behind the square for a bit of interest. I'm pretty sure this idea was in my head because I've seen it on someone's blog recently but I cannot remember who's or when it was. If anyone knows please let me know so I can link to them!
