#TGIFc224 - Sketch Challenge

Hey peaches and thanks for joining me for my debut as the newest creative member of the TGIF design team! If you're new to the TGIF Challenges, each Friday, we offer a new themed challenge for you to play along with. Be sure to check out the main blog for more details, inspiration, and the guidelines. This week's challenge is a sketch challenge and I absolutely love it!

Here are my submissions for this week's challenge:

I CASEd my design from a few details from a card in the Annual Catalog and put my own twist on it. These two cards were made using the Above The Clouds Bundle. I watercolored my main panel in an ombre effect and stamped a few of the smaller balloon images from the set. 

I embossed the flag banner in gold and stamped it in Coastal Cabana Ink.

I even made a matching mini 3x3 note card, only this one was done in Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink tones.

I wanted some scalloped ribbon to match my cards so I used some Purple Posy Scalloped Ribbon and used my Flirty Flamingo Blends to color it pink. I did the same thing for the Bermuda colored ribbon. I used the Seaside Spray ribbon and Bermuda Blends.

You can see the different tones here (above). Here's a close-up (below) of the finished card:

This angle (below) shows the gold embossing on the flag banner.
