Tuesday Morning Sketches #573

 Hello!  Thank you for stopping by, I do appreciate your visit.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning  Sketches and it's an interesting one.  I don't anyone to get stuck on the design - they are just elements and they can be interpreted however you wish.

So for my card, giving credit where it's due, is solely inspired by Yana Smakula.  She's been featuring white flowers on her blog and YouTube and I just had to try.  Yana is one in the crafting industry I look up to.  There's not many.  She just seems very genuine to me.


I love how my card turned out.  It's not without it's mistakes, but all in all, it makes me happy and I hope it inspires you.

My card features a beautiful stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  I got it some time back in a monthly kit and I don't get those much anymore because I found I use them less and less.  But Sunday I felt like trying something new and playing with my stamps and copics.  It took me a few hours to make this card, but again, so happy with the results.  The dies are from the May '20 Large DOM from Spellbinders.


It also features this beautiful silver paper that I got from Simon - I think it's a hologram pack.  I love the look of brushed silver paper.  This is layered on the same navy blue card stock I used.

I'm not Yana Smakula, but I hope I learned from her and will do her proud should she see my card.  I also hope to see you over at the TMS blog to join our challenge.  Also, while you're there leave some love for the team.
