EBTKS Challenge 21

It's time for another EBTKS challenge! Kelly has a great inspiration for us this week:
Who knew you could get inspiration while washing your clothes! EBTKS is all about find inspiration in our everyday lives. Here's this challenge's sketch:
I wasn't exactly sure where this sketch was going to take me, but I'm very satisfied with the result. However, it was certainly a journey and if you watch the video below you'll kind of see that what I think I'm going to end up with isn't always what happens.
At some point during the creative process I realized this card might make an interesting video (or maybe not, but I made one).

Or you can watch it at YouTube here.

The idea of the flowers comes completely from my buddy Shemaine at Love My Tapes! You can see her video here. Speaking of Love My Tapes, we are currently out of our Fabric Tapes in the Practicing Creativity store, but there are more on their way very soon! But don't worry, this week's sponsor is Love My Tapes!

This week's winner will win a 4 pack of their super strong adhesive (seriously this stuff will hold microbeads), 1 roll of fabric tape, and 1 sheet of fabric paper!

And I know you are going to want to go check out what the other girls made with Kelly's fab sketch! Come play along with us at EBTKS!
