Thinking of You

Hi there, friends!

Thank you all for such sweet words on Saturday's WMS Sketch card. I enjoyed creating that one. I have another card today that also started with inspiration from this week's WMS sketch.

I made this card for The Play Date Cafe Challenge #72, which was to use the colors orange, navy blue, and pink - ouch! The colors are beautiful together, but this was a tough one!

This is a favorite motif of mine, groups of flowers like these, and the cherry blossoms from Asian Gardens are perfect for this.

I used the small and medium-sized blossoms and stamped them in my pink and orange. I adhered some directly to my card base while others were adhere with dimensional tape. A few were accented with adhesive rhinestones. I love this look.

I brought some more blue into the design by adding the bird and cage, as well as the sentiment. A challenging color combination, but I love the end result!

Thank you for taking the time to stop in today and say hello, I've got a full schedule this week with lots of stuff going on, so come back tomorrow for more!

Have a great day!
