Happy Friday, friends!
I took a little liberty with Cecile’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge # 322
and interpreted the sketch with an oval as the focal point on my card.
I also decided to share it with Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #135 “All You Need is Love.”
I used a soft yet bright at the same time color palette of
Marina Mist and Melon Mambo with Pear Pizzazz added in. Notice that this delicate feminine card has a blue chickadee, too! I colored the pearls in the middle of the flowers melon mambo using my Stampin’ Blends. I love how easy it is to color pearls and rhinestones with alcohol markers!
OMGoodness! What a sweet card and I love the colors you chose!
Thanks, Jennifer…I was in a spring mood that day!
I just love your cards and your variety of creativity! I hope to be able to spend some time with you in Atlanta, Haven’t seen you in Janet in a long time! This may sound silly, like I should know this, but would You consider this a WOW card with the layers or would there to be more… And what more, layers, embellishments, color?? Ann

Awe, thanks so much, Ann. I miss you, too! Let’s make sure to sit together in Atlanta! I think this is more of a layered card. If I were to make it a WOW for a swap, I think I would do something like maybe that same design/colors/materials but pop up the oval with the bird on a panel like I did with the Country Livin’ cowboy boots card? Does that make sense?
So sweet! The colors are just perfect for spring, love the clean design! Thanks for joining us at Stamp Ink Paper, hope to see you again soon!
Thanks, Amy! I think I was subliminally channeling spring as I was in the cold north then!
Very pretty. Love the colors and pretty flowers.
Thank you, JoAnn. Hope all is well with you, dear!
