Freshly Made Sketches #337

Hey Everyone

Welcome to a new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our latest sketch has been designed by the wonderfully talented Linda Callahan.

I put a put of extra love into this card because I made it for my mum for Mother’s Day.  I always stress when it’s time to make my mum a card as I want it to be just right and make her feel a little bit special.  She might just love Stampin’ Up as much as I do! I love that we have this in common.

The flowers and leaves that I have used on my card are from Stampin’ Up!s Birthday Blossoms.  I have given them a little watercolour love with Fresh Fig and Old Olive Inks.  I then used my Fresh Fig Marker to give more definition to the petals.  There was quite a bit of fussy cutting between the flowers and leaves, but I don’t mind the time it takes as I’m generally singing along with my 80s music playing in the background.

The sentiment I’ve used is from a retired Stampin’ Up set called Oh So Succulent.  Behind the main panel I have used a light woodgrain DSP.  This pretty paper is from Woodgrain Textures Designer Series Paper Stack. My Whisper White Cardstock is matted with Fresh Fig Cardstock as I liked the contrast of this bold colour behind the white.

Here’s my card:
