Quick card for Lily Pad inspiration

Here’s I card I squeezed in last night. I made it for the end-of-month challenge over at Lily Pad Cards: it’s the Lily Pad Inspiration challenge #4.

I was inspired by a couple of ideas…. first the great sketch - Lucy’s Lovely Lines;Lucy's Lovely Lines sketch… and the yummy card that Therese made here to go with Kathy’s Lily Pad Palette.

Here’s my card:Lily Pad Cards inspiration#4
I was up for a kraft fix ;) and last week a dear friend passed me a bag of  super-cute retro patchwork fabric scraps, (it’s always fun to share crafty goodies no?).
Anyhoo, I thought some of them would be great for a spot of mix-and-match for those off-centre flowers.
I used my Nestabilities circle die and fixed them in place with black brads – Therese’s use of black with pops of colour was great, wasn’t it?
I drew the stems with my fine black marker.

For the accent in the corner of Lucy’s sketch, I added a fun bee brad. It’s been lurking in my stash for yonks – I think it was by Karen Foster.
A spot of doodling in white gel pen for the bee flight trail and to highlight the flower stems, to finish.

Bye for now, Rx

    Sorry for the typos on my first comment, I’m using my iPad, and I can’t see the comment box on the screen! I don’t know how to bring it up using word fess! Me and modern technology don’t get on!
