That was my thought when i saw this sketch over on Split Coast las week. But you know what? I LOVE this card. I pulled out some DP from Crate Paper called Farmers Market and then found some Studio Calico paper that worked for the strips. I put this all on black cardstock and it looks really elegant. That Tim Holtz cone flower is a favorite of mine. I bought the full set large and small just to have that flower in two sizes.
I am adding this into the Simon Wednesday challenge, anything goes.
