2 Sketches 4 You Ultimate Card Showdown #1

2 Sketches 4 You Ultimate Card Showdown #1, week 1

I made two cards for this challenge, and here's the first.

This is a very plain card material wise - I used no fancy papers. The purple paper is origami paper, and white inlay is plain watercolor paper. I sponged the edges and the patterned strip with purple acrylic paint - oh and can you notice I picked up a pair of pattern scissors? The two layers I stitched together by hand, bookbinding type thing. I am planning to write to the inlay, so that's why it is mostly just plain white. The brads I used were from Denise's blog candy lot and the sentiment means "For a friend" in Finnish, handwritten.

Papers: purple colored card stock, purple origami paper
Images: Scrappy Cat flourishes, Basic Gray: EVA - Whisper Bitsy Clear Stamps
Ink: VersaColor Burgundy
Coloring: Marvy Le Plume II no. 64 Plum
Other: purple bling brads
