A Sketch, A Color and A Theme


Happy Sunday to all of you. The sun is shinning and it's going to be a beautiful day. Too bad I get to spend it taking down our pool. We finally decided it was time. Over the past couple of years it hasn't been used enough to justify spending the money on it. So it's coming down and a raised bed garden is going in.

I wanted to stop in really quick this morning before heading outside to post a card I made. I was able to combine three challenges is one . I love the sketch Jen came up with at Freshly Made Sketches.  Over at Less is More the theme this week is yellow. This is not a color that I normally gravitate to so this was a stretch for me. And finally Mother's Day at Paper Players.

To pull the card together more I rounded a couple of edges to tie them in with the oval focal point. I stamped the flowers off the oval so I could have them hanging over the edge. Below you can see how I layered the card.



   
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a blessed day.

Supplies used:
Stamps PTI Botanical Silhouettes and Studio G (Best Mom)

  3. We made that decision with our pool last summer and the summer before we took down the playhouse. This year there are no tell tale signs of either. :(
    Such a beautiful card Deanna. The yellow just pops off the page and is so spring-y. Also perfect fussy cutting on the flowers.

  9. This is so pretty. My favorite part is the symmetrical rounded corners and the flowers that go over the edge of the die cut.
