Atlantic Hearts Sketch 93

This week's sketch at Atlantic Hearts is one for which I decided to dig deep - deep in my stash for some old paper, that is! I used some Avonlea paper from WAY back! The teal colour of this paper was perfect for what I wanted. Unfortunately, my camera just doesn't seem to like these colours when it comes to photographing my artwork... 
I decided to interpret the flower part of the sketch a little bit differently and use ribbon accents instead. I created three ribbon banners facing upwards instead. 
I also separated my scalloped bottom from the base of the card for a little more interest. 

I discovered after some  experimenting that Glacier ink matches the mint design in the Avonlea teal paper almost exactly! I still have some of this precious paper left so that's good to know :)
