Field Flowers Wednesday Sketch Challenge

 This weeks Sketch Challenge was a fun one.  It had just enough layers and it had a nice large focal space.  I thought I would go with the black and white look for mine.  I had not done a black and white card in a long time.  Personally I find them more difficult than doing a colored card.  So it was a double challenge for me, the sketch and the color (or lack of color).

The base of my card is Basic Black.  On top of that (layers 1 and 2) are decorative papers from the Neutrals pack.  The flowers are from the "Field Flowers" set.  It was the first time I got to play with that set and after making this card and looking at a few samples around the net, I am SO looking forward to making more cards.  The flower images in this set are SO pretty.  There is a lot of fun detail but yet will require just a little bit of coloring to make it look pretty.
The #4 and #5 spot on the sketch were easy enough too.  I used ribbon for both of them.  I was going to use a circle and a circle scallop and make the card a birthday card but I think I've made a lot of birthday cards lately.  I have a drawer full of birthday cards and Christmas cards.  One of these years I should just use those Christmas cards for our cards and not have to make any (there are a LOT of cards in that drawer!!!).

If you have time give this sketch a try, it is a lot of fun.  I have some other images I want to use and they will work if I turn the sketch a quarter turn!  I'm looking forward to playing with this one again!

Thank you every so much for visiting today,
