Tuesday Morning Sketches #489

Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  LJ's sketch pick is up at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and this one is a great sketch by Debbie.

My card features stamps from the Mini-Wreath Builder set by Gina K and a background stamp that was in the August Simon Says Stamp kit.


This card was fun to make - I was actually just stamping mindlessly.  I had nothing going on in my head, no ideas forming, just stamping.  At first I was just playing with the little wreath and I think I was video chatting with my son.  I wasn't even really paying attention to what colors I used.  I used 2 shades of gray, a beautiful purple and this really nice blue.  Then I grabbed a couple of my Gelly Roll pens and added some dots.  I love the little roses and it made me think of the background stamp and I don't think I'd used but maybe one time before.  So staying with the color theme I stamped my panels.  I placed them onto a scratch piece of card stock to cut the circle and then adhered them to a gray A2 size card base.  Then added a little bow using white/gray baker's twine.  I think I finished the card when I was Facetiming with my sister the next day.

It was quite relaxing to make!

We'll see you over at the TMS blog and be sure to visit the team.  They made some really great cards!
