Thinking of you

Hi all! Back from my business trip and decided to get creative with a few challenges today.

I used this weeks Freshly Made Sketch as a starting point.

The recipe over at Less is More is to use newsprint, so I dug out some old SU designer paper and layered it with scarlet jewel to match the flower. Vintage cream cardstock from PTI used as the card base.

Flower and sentiment are old stamps from the former Angel Company. Flower is colored with Copic markers and the fussy cut out.

Some jute used to tie the bow on top of the newsprint for some added interest. Flower is popped up using foam tape.

That's it for this post. Thanks for stopping by!
