Freshly made Sketch # 1

Well i figured with Mojo on some well deserved holidays i would find another Sketch to follow.  So after visiting Nina's beautiful blog and seeing a new sketch blog out there i decided it would be fun to join in the begining of  Freshly made sketches.  So i am just squeezing in this week though...barely :)

Here is this weeks sketch to follow
I had fun making this card and is kind of bold put i really tried to stick with the colors in my background paper. The sentiment is a bit hard to see but i didn't want it really bold...I didn't want to take away from the card. The flower was an inspired piece that Barb  ( Mrs.Miles/Aunt) had created through a project she found in a magazine. Liked it thought i would give it a try and i wish i would have made it a bit smaller but however it worked.

I do apologize as this picture doesn't show it well, as i usually take my pictures outside to get some natural light but with finishing it this evening i wasn't able to do so.

Well i hope you all have a wonderful week! and with some luck i will get to start another  card tomorrow.
