Sweet Sunday Sketch #15

Good afternoon. It's a beautiful spring day here is Southern California, and I have every door and window open in the house to let some fresh air in. I love these days, not too hot and not too cold. I wish it would stay like this forever... but I know that summer is knocking on our door and will be here all too soon.

I loved Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch for this week the second I laid eyes upon it! I knew exactly what dp I wanted to use and the colors that would go with it. I also decided to take a nod from Karen and create a Mother's Day card. (Mom, be surprised when this shows up in your mailbox!)

This also fits the theme for Verve's April Project Parade: It's a Girl Thing- Celebrating the Women in our Lives. I have another project up my sleeve, but can't reveal it until after Mother's Day. :o)

I got some new stamps in the mail yesterday and think I'll spend some time this afternoon playing around with them... There's something magical about inking up a new stamp for the first time. It's undiscovered potential, the crisp smell, unstained rubber... It's a great thing! lol

This is a pretty straight forward card. I did add a small jewel to the middle of the flower in the sentiment and colored the flower with my copic markers.

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Hi Kristina ... first off let me just say that I am so looking forward to the summer and if any, today was a sample of what's to come. A beautiful warm, sunny day here in Toronto, ON :) I just love your card and the DP is definitely springy. I sure hope your mom does not see this online ... she needs to see it IRL first hand!
