Scrapling for June

Hello
Here in my corner of Hertfordshire it's not raining (at the moment) - and there's even some sunshine.  Mind you, I'm not sure how warm it is as the furthest I've been is the doorstep to get the milk!
I sat down to make something for my Sketch File project yesterday and as my mojo had upped and left I struggled finding things I wanted to use.  
So I decided a slightly different approach was needed and grabbed a scrapling from the box where I keep offcuts.  I'm sure you know, but just in case, a Scrapling is made from the strip that's left when you cut a 14 or 15cm square card from a sheet of A4.  You end up with a long, roughly 7cm strip which you fold in half to get a tall, skinny  card.

This shape always forces me to think a bit differently about what to use, placement and overall balance - somehow it's a gentle nudge when inspiration is lacking.  

I chose a couple of papers to make the panel from, and then decided to keep the whole thing really quick and simple.  

Info

The June 2016 Sketch
I "squeezed" it, then used the ribbons to echo the larger rectangle

That's it for this time, thank you for visiting

Fabulous scrapling, love the blues and pinks with the kraft card, as well as your interpretation of the sketch. I use my off-cuts for scrapling cards and tags too.

Such a beautiful card. It may be simple but it's very effective Kathy. Is scrapling a made up word? Sounds so cute, like ducklings for papercrafters!
