Kraftyhands March Challenge

Hi crafters,

Hope you are all well. Here is my DT card for the Kraftyhands March Challenge. You can enter the challenge here and take a look at the other DT cards for inspiration.

This month's theme is a sketch.
Here is my card using the sketch. I've used the Sunshine and Smiles Cd Rom from Kraftyhands for my design.
I used an 8x8 white card blank and matted a backing paper from the Cd onto a dark blue centura pearl card stock. The topper was taken from the Pyrimage section of the Cd and also matted onto the dark blue card.
 I used a yellow backing paper and a yellow with white polka dots backing paper to make the fishtail effects. These too were matted onto the dark blue card. and raised from the base using 3D foam pads.
I took one of the toppers from the Cd and took this into Paint and removed the sentiment that was on. I then took it into Craft Artist and added my own sentiment - Happy Easter- which I felt went with the card as the flower is in an egg and it is for the March challenge and Easter falls in this month this year. I found some centura pearl paper in a matching dark blue and made a rosette on which to put the sentiment, although there are papers to make rosettes and instructions on the cd.
In the top right hand corner, I placed three flower gems which I found in my stash. I coloured these with Spectrum Noirs so that they matched the colour on the flower on the topper. I placed a gem in the middle of each flower gem which matched the backing paper.
Inside the card, I placed an insert. These can also be found on the Cd. I took it into Craft Artist and on one of the blank inserts, I added a verse - Wishing you an eggs-tra special Easter that's full of surprises. With love.
On the other blank insert, I flipped it so that the flower was on the opposite side.
Thank you for taking the time to come over and have a look. I appreciate it and your comments.
Happy crafting and don't forget to enter the challenge. Remember - you have to be in it to win it! Good luck.
Wendy xx

Great interpretation of the sketch and I love the fact that you've chosen the yellow from the topper for the banner pieces.
