Poppy Sketches Challenge - Sketch #3

For today's blog I chose to participate in the Poppy Sketches Challenge. I was inspired by the color scheme and stumped by the layout. I couldn't figure out how to incorporate the little angles.

After playing around with a few ideas, I finally came up with this little card:

I love the Simon Says Stamp Air Vent die and those angles kept reminded me of the sketch. After I figured out how to incorporate it, I focused on the main angles and tied on some ribbon. The initial knot I tied made "leaves" pop in my head. Voila! I pulled out my Papertrey Ink Notched Flowers die and went to work. I added a little bit of gold ink on the edges to make them pop out more. Overall a fun color scheme to work with and an easy little thank you card to have on hand.
