Guest designing for Playing in Paradise!


A couple of weeks ago I was the lucky winner at Playing in Paradise's Cherry Blossom challenge. Afterwards I was asked if I wanted to guest design for them in an upcoming challenge - Of course I wanted to do that so today I'm introducing their newest challenge which is a sketch challenge:
I just loved working with this one.




For my card I used papers from October Afternoon and the sentiment stamp is from My favorite things.

Good Luck, hugs, Karin

Karin, Such a pretty card. I love the soft blue with the cream and kraft. Any tips on how you got that burlap heart to stay put (no frays?) Great texture contrast between the lace and the burlap! It totally works! And congratulations on your guest design spot!
