Flowers in Silhouette GSG Swap

Flowers in Silhouette GSG Swap

For the second new catty swap I created for the Great Swaps Girls, I used one of Beate’s older Weekend Sketches (#51). I was in desperate need of inspiration and a sketch usually gets me going.

I kept the design clean and simple, using some of the new products (punch, ribbon, paper) in the catalog. The Flowers in Silhouette stamp is similar to one of the images in the Central Park set, just with a shorter stem and without the dotted stripes. You can find it on the “Under $10” page (p. 208) in the Spring-Summer 2009 Idea Book & Catalog.

Thanks for stopping by!
