Sweet Simple Things - Bloggers Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  Thanks so much to those who played along with last weeks Celebration Challenge, it was wonderful to see what everyone created for the challenge.  This week Kim sent me over a photo of her floral Kindle Cover, which is the inspiration for this weeks Color Challenge (Green/Black/Purple/Blue/Vanilla or White)

Instead of using pattern paper, I created my own background using the Dahlia from Our Daily Bread Designs, stamping the image in Amethyst, Bashful Blue and Rangers Black Archival.

The sketch was inspired by Let's Capture These Sketches #10, I moved my sentiment (ODBD Simple Things) to the center circle, stamping in Black Archival and sponging the edges in Amethyst.  To embellish I added some Zva Creative Black Flourish Gems (CRS-02CB-106), some dyed Seam Binding and Zva Creative White Elegant Rose Buds (FLBK-03CB-145)
