Around the World Challenge #22 - Sketch!

Hi! It's August 1st already, and that means it's time for another Around the World Stampin' Up! Challenge. This time it's a sketch:

I created this card for the challenge:

I am loving the new Blendabilities Markers, so on this card I used the Melon Mambo set (good news, it's available starting today!), the Daffodil Delight set and the Old Olive set to colour the Blended Bloom flower. The Blendabilities Markers are designed to work best on Whisper White or Very Vanilla card stock, but I wanted to try them out on my favourite: Crumb Cake. I really like the way it looks... it tones down the colour a bit (although it's looking pretty vibrant on my computer screen). They blended really well on the Crumb Cake, but I did have to be more careful around the lines of the image because it seemed to bleed out more than I was used to on Whisper White. The leaves behind my flower are from Kinda Eclectic and my sentiment is from A Dozen Thoughts. I finished the card with some torn Pear Pizzazz strips embossed with the Delicate Designs embossing folder, some Linen Thread and In Color Sequins.

Thanks for looking! We'd love to have you play along with the challenge... Create a card based on this sketch, post it online somewhere and add it to the Challenge Post!
