Day 17 ~ Sketch 17

Don't you love paisleys? I do. My 16 year old daughter hates paisley. I think she just doesn't like them because I do. I really thought I would be one of those young, hip moms! But, nope! I remember telling my mom that her pants were "funky". And I think my daughter thinks the same thing sometimes about some of the things I wear! {sigh}There may always be a "generation gap".

But on to the post.... I bring up Paisley because that is what is going into the basket today! Fifteen paisleys! One paisley stamp by Inkadinkadoo, a package of 3 rhinestone paisleys and an assortment of eleven 6x6 sheets of paisley designer papers. (The pink one on top is flocked...SO purdy!)

If this is your first time here and you are wondering what's going on, please see this post.

Well, I guess since I am going backwards today, I better share the sketch!

Don't let the tree throw you! Your image can be anything you want it to be and you can have ANY colors you want, but remember if your card is Summer Sun, Bravo Burgundy (or baroque) and Pumpkin Pie I will give you an extra entry for the treasure!

And here is my card for Day 17.

Card Recipe:
Stamps~ Flowers of Gratitude, Floral background
Ink~ Palette Noir Black, Eggplant marker
Paper~ Eggplant Envy, Orchid Opulence, Basic Black, Naturals White
Accessories~ SU Watercolor pencils, OMS, Pewter hardware, black organdy ribbon (SU), Cutter Kit

I also made this card in blue with a sympathy sentiment for my niece.
Have fun with today's sketch! It is really very easy! Give it a shot! And don't forget to let me know about your card for this sketch in the comments on this post!
Have a FUN day!

I love paisleys also but don't actually have any stamping supplies featuring them. Go figure. A nice easy sketch I can't wait to try out.

Purdy posted paisleys! Lovely -- and I'd love to have 'em. I guess you're not getting something paisley for your birthday, right? As a child of the 60s, I'm still a huge paisley fan. Thanks for letting me play along.
