March Blog Challenge

My card for the Kraftyhands March Blog Challenge

This month the challenge is to follow a sketch.
I decided to follow it as exactly as I could. Working with an A3 piece of card I cut it down to be 8x8. 
I used the Fleur Francais CD and chose design 3 of the pyramid selection but only used the first layer so I had a big bold flower in the purple shade. I then chose suitable backing papers from the sets using 3 again so I knew the colours would match. I used a rich purple card to mat and layer.
For the bow tails I decided to make two in embossed silver mirri and the third in the purple card. To lift is a little I embossed it using the swiss dots embossing folder.
The sentiment is aslo from the CD and I mounted that on silver mirri card and cut a very thin border.
The three little flower heads complete the design.
The simple sketch is a good idea to keep to one side if you ever run dry of ideas it will act as a starting plan to get you playing.
Hope you like the card and can join us playing with this months challenge using Kraftyhands products.
