It’s All About You

Happy Sunday to you.  We are finally getting a touch of spring weather in PA and it feels so nice.

Today I am playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

FMS Final 224-001

It is such a simple and straightforward sketch that it was actually a little difficult for me.  What threw me was the large open space.  This sketch spoke clean and simple to me and that really is not my strong suit.  Here is what I came up with.

I stamped the flower image from the Sale-a-bration set, What I Love, in Versa-Mark and heat embossed with Black embossing powder.  The sentiment is from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set and is inked in Basic Black. The embossing is actually just enough to allow these flowers to stand out.

Once I figured out the image, the rest of this card came together super fast and easy.  The Basic Black 3/8″ Satin Ribbon is the finishing touch.

The inside sentiment is also from the Birthday Blossoms set.  I accented the inside and the envelope flap with the same flower inked in Mint Macaron to match the cardstock on the front.

Once I stopped trying to over-think this card, it really came together rather quickly. Thanks so much for checking in today and I hope you have a little touch of spring in your day.
