Snowdrops in a jar

It's sketch week at CAS Colours and Sketches and our hostess this month, Patricia, has designed this awesome sketch - love that any non-rectangular shape -gives loads of possibilities

I must explain that I have moved the shape-hope that's OK. My shape has moved into the triangular bit, oh, and I've moved that around too, by switching the sides. Better just shut up and show you!

I was going to put the jar of snowdrops in the centre, but after playing with the design felt it looked better this way.  I do hope Patricia can still see the sketch well enough. Do you see the sparkle on the flowers?  It's my newest stash addition-Dazzling Details.  The snowdrop is a magazine freebie and I'm just so sick of all the bad weather I wanted to make a card inspired by Spring, so it was a perfect choice. The polka dot ribbon is olive green and matches much better in RL. The jar is stamped on acetate.
UPDATE- after looking at my fellow DT cards I had a brain wave and tweaked my card, what do you think? The colours are truer on this pic too, don't know why I didn't think of adding the sentiment before, it's from Happiest Birthday Wishes, in case you were wondering.


  1. Very pretty Louise - I'm sick of the weather too so it's lovely to see your cheerful snowdrops - Jacqueline xx

  2. Very pretty, Louise! I love how you worked with the sketch!

  3. Yep - you got it when you added the sentiment panel! :) I like that you showed how you worked your way through this. There are times when some of my card ideas take a while to click into place, too. The ribbon through the jar is a neat finishing touch!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
