Joy indeed!

Hello again, I'm back with wonderful news - I've been chosen for a Guest Designer for Sketch 40 at Card Patterns!! I cannot begin to tell how happy I was to find this out - thank you so much girls, it's an honour to join you!
I won't reveal the sketch, since it hasn't yet been posted, but I can show you my interpretation of it :)


The idea for this one came from the current challenge at Flourishes Newsletter (FTTC40).
The rules are to combine a colored image, texture or textures, and any shades of neutrals we want (which is any combination of whites, creams, blacks, browns, and grays). I used two shades of brown, white and grey (which for some reason looks a tad green here...)
The texture comes from faux stitching, cardstock, and some in-colour stamping on the panels.
I chose poinsettia flowers for this project, for I knew that a strong, vivid colour like red would pop up wonderfully against a neutral background.
The rest is a standard: I used watercolour pencils for the image, and wrote the sentiment using a marker.

EDIT: the challenge is now on, and you can see this lovely sketch here at Card Patterns.

Thank you for stopping by tonight, happy crafting!
