Freshly Made Sketches 143

Happy Wednesday everyone!  There's a new sketch reveal over at Freshly Made Sketches today.  This week our hostess is the supremely talented Cindy Lovell.  Every time I visit Cindy's blog I add a little something to my stamping supplies wish list!  She's got this wonderful clean stamping style and she's always using something on her cards that once I've seen it I've got to own it!



I fret for two days over the colors to use on my card before deciding on the colors of the inspiration card at Muse.  I used a new floral stamp set that I got because I decided I didn't have enough floral  images in my stash.  I think I put the leaves down when I had my eyes closed because they look a whole lot off kilter and unbalanced to me but they're stuck down with glue dots and there not going anywhere now!

Be sure to pop on over to Freshly Made Sketches and see the amazing cards from the design team.  They will surely knock your socks off!

Thanks for stopping by!

That flower looks so fresh and crisp colored in blue and I think your leaves look fine - in fact I had to scroll back up to look at the card against after reading your comment about them! Still didn't see anything amiss - this is one gorgeous card.

I always love how you use your stamps so creatively for sketches -- like how you used the grid and watercolor brushstroke stamps on this! A beautiful card, Jen!
