This also uses Card Patterns Sketch 146 http://cardpatterns.blogspot.com/2011/12/sketch-146.html
I used A Year of Flowers by Gina K and illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger. I didn't have the colors that the challenge called for, so I combined colors to get a close match. The backgrounds were stamped with Gina K's Vintage Borders and Ribbon Stripes with Memento Bamboo Leaves. The sentiment is also Gina K from Winter Friends. The Gina K Release Challenge was to make your own patterned paper http://stamptv.ning.com/forum/topics/challenge-1-make-your-own-designer-paper.
Next, Lily Pad Cards has a challenge to use chipboard http://www.lilypad.inlinkz.com/2011/12/30/5033/ And over at CASE Study this is for Challenge #71
this also fits the same Gina K Release Challenge.
I used only a part of the sentiment from Gina K's Winter Friends. Painted the chipboard U with an acrylic paint dauber in blue. Stamped the sentiment and cut out wth Spellbinders Pennant die and added dots around the edge with a Sakura Stardust blue gel pen. The background was made with a ruler and the same Stardust gel pen.
Thanks for taking a look!
