Friday, May 25, 2012 may be coming back

We have all experienced those frustrating times when nothing works....well to be more specific, nothing that is created seems to have that extra appeal, nothing is beautiful....And I have been in that mojo-less place for sometime now and I spent my time doing other things - reading books, trying to get on the treadmill, munching down Chips Ahoy etc. etc. Started many a cards and then ended up scrapping them. But yesterday, it seems everything clicked. May be, it's coming back. Fingers crossed...
I started with the sketch from Sketch Saturday challenge and the colors from the beautiful inspiration picture at The Shabby tea room and this is what I came up with.

The papers are from K& Company French Country Collection. The flowers are all made from rice paper and then colored except for the little yellow rose which is from my stash from so long ago, I don't remember where I bought it. Everything is distressed with vintage Photo distress ink from Tim Holtz. I have not yet written the sentiment, it will be written when I am ready to mail the card.
The inside of the card is quite simple.

Just enough space to write a nice note.
The card is, surprisingly, quite light and should be easy to mail.

Submitting for the following challenges:

The Shabby tea room  where the inspiration photo was

 and we needed to add a dimensional flower, plenty of those on my card :)

and the
The Sketch saturday challenge
where the sketch was
I think I went a little off sketch but it is still pretty close, right? Well, I did really enjoy it, so....
