Basic Grey Challenge - #5

I decided to take part in the Basic Grey challenge this month as I found their blog by accident while I was trawling around the net. I really like the sketch so I thought I would join in the fun. Below is the sketch we were to follow. . . .

And this is my interpretation of the above sketch.

I used the Boxer set of papers which I adore and have made many journals and cards from this series and every time I find some more I buy it lol. I chose to accent the pale blue which is on the Fedora print so on this card it is the two background pieces and you can see some pale blue on the right hand side of the card.
So that is it for me today.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Wow! What a sketch to follow and you did an awesome job with it! It's just beautiful. Hope you're doing well. I'm laying off cardmaking until I get my work area cleaned up! I waited for the good fairy but she was a no show!

Such a beautiful card and I love how you interpreted the sketch. I agree with you about the boxer papers, they're one of my favourites too. Your focal images is superb too. Thanks for joining us at BasicGrey Challenges. Chris and the Design Team:)
