"What was I thinking?" Wednesday

I guess I better explain the title.... for some reason that has yet to be determined (insanity I suspect), I decided to combine a pastel colour challenge with a complicated sketch. For those who know me, I'm a bright coloured, clean and simple gal. So needless to say, I'm not 100% happy with this but decided to post it anyway. Guess I'm a glutton for punishment!

This is for the Embellish Colour challenge (squares) and Mojo Monday Sketch #189. One of the colours on the Embellish challenge is a light pink and I do have some on my card (just not very much) - the pearls and the baker's twine in the button. Thanks to both DTs for all the inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by. I always appreciate it.

  1. I love what you've done with this! That sketch is a toughy and you interpreted it beautifully! Love that floral embellishment!

  3. You've done perfectly fine, Glenda! Love that DSP flower and the little "ribbon" coming out from it.....AND that little line of pearls on the one leaf are perfect!!
