A Bloomin' Sketch

I needed a third card for an upcoming class and when I saw this sketch, I thought it might be just perfect, with the front panel being just the right size for the Dahlia from Bloomin' with Kindness.
I paired Lucky Limeade with Razzleberry and the fun chevron from Summer Smooches. I'm not sure about the woodgrain embossed piece paired with chevron, but wanted some texture..what do you think?

I think my new favourite sentiment stamp is from Petite Pairs:

                       so many smiles...begin with you!

enjoy your day!

  3. What great colours, Laurie ~ that woodgrain looks fab with the Chevron, it's not really 'obvious' it just adds that touch of extra pizzazz. LOVE IT!

  5. I think you can never have enough woodgrain! I really have to force myself not to use my impression plate on everything because it makes everything better IMHO. And I love the color combo - very striking :)

  10. I do like the chevron and wood grain. Wood grain seems to be 'in' now, my upline is using it for everything!
