Wow two posts in one afternoon!
I knew as soon as I saw this weeks Retro Sketch Challenge that I wanted to rotate the sketch 90 degrees and make a handbag style card - then when I saw this weeks colours at Colour Q with the cute Easter Basket inspiration, I just had to combine the two!
I have used some of this gorgeous paper from My Little Shoebox which combines all the colours from the challenge! The rosette was created from teal cardstock and SEI paper using a Spellbinders diecut and Fiskars circle punch, then pop-dotted to the card - with the added bonus of the top flap of the handbag being able to be tucked securely in place behind the rosette. I love this sentiment from Skipping Stones Design.
I decided that the end of my pennant needed more definition and backed that section with the teal cardstock too (see the third photo) - works a treat!
Let me know if you would like more details about how I cut the shape - mine was just make it up as you go, but there are plenty of great patterns on the web and I think there may even be special die cuts available.
Hope you have a wonderful day!
