Birthday Sketch

A not-so-quick card this afternoon using the sketch from Creative Blooms Journey.  It looked so simple! But all those tiny squares had to match and be placed just so.... Yikes! Took hours instead of minutes! But I like the end result. I used two background stamps (Paper Floral & Playful Leaves) and the colors from the color crush on the FSJ Facebook page. (I used color crush A). The  colors are Pretty Pansy, Cranberry Bliss, Pumpkin Bread, and Sweet Pear. There's Journey Glaze in there too!

I'm entering this card in the challenges at:

I'm Back!

I can't believe I haven't posted on my blog here since mid July! The end of the summer was VERY busy! We took a wonderful trip to the UP in Michigan then went camping for 2 weeks. Then it was time to jump back into the Fall activities: BSF and Sunday School preparations (I'm superintendent!).
Tomorrow is Sunday School kick-off and I think I finally have everything ready (I hope!)

A dear friend and fellow cardmaker lost her husband to cancer about two weeks ago, so I wanted to make a really nice card for her. I hope she likes it. It was made with a combination of different crafty products...I won't post a list, but if you want to know, just leave a comment.
The flower centers are tiny glass beads!
