Hello everyone! Today’s sketch was inspired by Valerie’s Flora Bama layout from this month’s gallery.

sketch 0828

I was very much inspired by the stitched circles in Valerie’s layout so I created two cards using this concept:

circle card1

On this card, I filled the inside of a polaroid frame with circles punched out of patterned papers. I used a blank label + stickers for the sentiment, then added a bit of texture with twine and candy dots.

For the second card I created a stitched circle background, similar to Valerie’s layout. I then used a circle tag from this month’s exclusive kit and wrapped jute around it to make it pop.
