Freshly Made Sketches #182 & A Little Thank You

Today my card is for Freshly Made Sketches #182 - A Sketch by Rita  and this is the sketch

I didn't have a patterned paper that I had envisaged for the design I had in my mind, so I designed my own - not a lot of you will know that I designed for my own website that sold digital papers for card makers, which I had to close because I couldn't afford the upkeep any longer . . . and this is where the 'Thank You' in the title of my post comes in.  At the end of the post, apart from the usual supplies list will be four  thumbnails, one for UK A6 papers and one for US A2 papers, for two slightly different patterns, you just click (no need to right-click) on the relevant picture and they should download immediately.

These papers are just variations of colour of the paper I designed for this card today and are sized exactly to UK & US standard card sizes (just print four to a page).  One set is for the card I made here - yellow & white stripes + other colour variations and the second set is slightly different, in that, they are self striped - two shades of the same colour - anywho, this is the card

Supplies used:

White textured cardstock - I've had a while and can't remember what it is exactly
Patterned Paper - My own design, see below
Bazzill - Yellow cardstock
Spellbinders - Floral Flourish die
Lil' Inker - Winter Flower
Paper Smooches - Scripty Sayings
Colorbox - Marigold & Orange pigment inks
Versafine - Black Onyx ink

As always, thank you all so much for visiting and please feel free to download the papers below.  Have a lovely day/evening!  Hazel xx
