Hello and welcome back to the blog.  Today was kinda one of those days, I've been dealing with a lot of back, hip and knee paid lately.  No matter how I sat I just couldn't get it to let up. So I wound up taking some pain meds, which for me is a big deal. I got to my desk just long enough to create something wonderful to share.  Thank God for this! Keeping it short today. On to the card for today.

I started off by picking another stamp from Altenew's Poppy Garden (I love this set so much) and going to Freshly Made Sketches to see what the sketch of the week was. Jen M. made this really cool sketch #FMS421 with a circle (any shape) and a square with rounded corners. So to fit the sketch I draw an outline with one side round and the other square.  I colored the poppy in with Copics in YR09 and YR27and fussy cut it. I stamped the smaller image in the background along with a Silver glitter pen and some paint splatters in the background.  The sentiment is from Best Sentiments. 80lb White cardstock and Obsidian Black ink were also used on today's card.

Let's pray
Heavenly Father thank you for the blessings, for crafting and the people who love to share and create, for art that bring so many of your children together to celebrate the gifts you have given us.

  1. What a pretty take on the sketch!

  2. I love this! A little bit clean, a little bit grunge, yet a delicate feel. I particularly like how you drew your square with both squared and rounded corners, breaks to allow the stem and small flower be a part of it, and the accent squiggles.

  3. What a beautiful card! Love that pretty flower and the fun splotches in the background! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

    1. Thanks Jen, I always look forward to FMS challenge each week :)
