Sketch Challenge - PPA2.............



This sweet little card will be set at each place setting as a favor at a late summer garden wedding. Dusty Durango matches the terra cotta pots that will hold the centerpieces, while the So Saffron and Very Vanilla coordinate with the wedding colors. The stamp from Pocket Silhouettes is stamped with Old Olive and hints at what is inside. The bride and groom will write a message attached to some very special paper. Embedded in the paper are seeds - wildflowers will grow where the paper is planted. How cool is that! Oh - and it just so happens that this card fits in perfectly with the second challenge from Pals Paper Arts!

Hi, Linda! I love the card, the colors, and how they will be used for the upcoming wedding! Neat, neat idea using the paper embedded with the wildflower seeds! The image from Pocket Silhouettes couldn't be more appropriate! Beautiful idea and a beautiful card!

Your Pal,

Beautifil card - I love the colors and the clean look! Using paper with embedded seeds is a great idea for any card, but for a wedding card it's perfect!
