Lunchtime Challenge #103

Ok, I have to admit it.....MaryJo's sketch this week was definitely a difficult one.....waaaayyyy out of my comfort zone! But, I managed to come up with this sample, although I'm not really crazy about it.....and I definitely needed some inspiration, here it is. I found this card on Split Coast and adapted it to this layout. But as you'll see, I took many of the same elements and even the color scheme from this inspiration piece!
So, for this sample....I dusted off Eastern Blooms. Although a lovely set, I haven't touched it in a very long time! The designer papers used here retired months ago and so has one of the colors, Baja Breeze....remember how we all loved that color? (Or was it just me?!!)
You can see MJ's original sketch and those that have participated here. Thanks for stopping by today!
Stamps: Eastern Blooms, Short & Sweet
Inks: Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy
CS: Whisper White, Not Quite Navy, Old Olive
Misc: DSP*, Circle Cutter, Scallop Circle #2 Die Cut, Big Shot, Silver Mini Brad, White Taffeta Ribbon, Clips Assortment, Corner Rounder, Old Olive Marker, Small Square Punch (for the notch in the greeting)
*Retired
Please note: All materials used to create this sample are from SU!
