2 Sketches 4 You #57


Happy Friday! I hope you're looking forward to the weekend as much as I am. Today I just wanted to post my take on Kazan's sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You. I've been making these crocheted flowers while on vacation, so I was looking for an excuse to use them on another card and saw the perfect opportunity with this sketch!


I wanted to keep the overall design very simple to let these little beauties shine, so I paired them with a basic sentiment and some pretty (but not busy) patterned paper. This paper is just lovely in person, with just a bit of glitter to make it sparkle. It's from DCWV's The Linen Closet stack, which I finally found in an 8 x 8 size (1100 miles from home, of course!).

I mentioned in a previous post that these flowers are from a pattern on Nichole Heady's blog, but did you notice those adorable crocheted leaves? I promise to share the link to that pattern soon, I just don't have it in front of me at the moment. Needless to say, I was excited to find a pattern that so perfectly complements these little blooms.

Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (white), Bazzill (kraft)
Patterned paper: DCWV (The Linen Closet stack)
Stamp: unknown
Ink: Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate), Clearsnap (Creamy Brown)
Tool: Papertrey Ink (scallop border die)
Accessories: buttons, DMC floss, thread

That's all for now, as I must get some sleep before another day of driving tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!

Oooooh! More of your beautiful crocheted flowers! You are making me green with envy! Remind me, did you share a pattern? In know Nicole shared one some time ago. I am going to twist somebody's arm to teach me this. It can't be that difficult, right?
