Greetings from Dalarne

For me, this card is real Swedish summer and especially summer in Dalarna (Dalarne - old way of saying it) where I come from. I've followed the Sketch from the Friday Sketchers Challenge this week. The text to the right says "Greetings from Dalarne" and the picture in the middle is a collage with a Kurbits which is a really old way of painting floral-like patterns on paintings, a skiss of a dress from behind and front, an example of a traditional dress from a village called Rättvik and a real sewing pattern for another dress in the same style. The scribblings are about the bodice of the dress and tells us about the colour and the fabric. It also says "entirely hand sewn". The blue colour is not really typical for the dresses, they are more dark but I like that blue colour, it reminds me of the sky a warm summer day.
I've used paper from DCWV Citrus Matstack and apricot card stock.

Hej! Visst var den här skissen helt underbar att jobba med. Om du vill ha fler tips på utmaningar - så vore det kul att se fler svenska bidrag i vår BnW/RoP challenge. Du hittar länkar på min blogg - eller så går du direkt till sidan: http://www.ropchallenge.blogspot.com/

Ha en härlig vecka!
