Tuesday Morning Sketches #249

Good Morning!  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and I am your sponsor this week.  I will be offering a $10 voucher to Ellen Hutson LLC - an amazing online store that has become a favorite of mine!

I really love this week's sketch and can you believe it - I actually forgot an element.  It was too late to undo what I did and in the famous words of Jennifer McGuire, never restart a card.  It's the Judged Challenge, so the twist is flowers.  My flower is an svg cut by Lori Whitlock (she's a favorite, too).  I think I need to learn what prickly pear flowers are and how these are supposed to go together.  For being 3D, it looks a little flat.

I am still very pleased with the results.  I've also been playing around with watercolor.  The background features a technique that I learned from yet another Stampin' Up! commercial on You Tube.  The video artist is Audrey and you can find it here.  She seems very sweet.  I still have a lot to learn with the technique that she's showing, but still it was fun to try.

The tiny bow above the flower is a die by Mama Elephant.  I think they're becoming a favorite to me just because of the name!  This die was all of $5 and only Ellen Hutson had it in stock!

Well, that's it for me today.  Head on over to the TMS blog to play along.

Very lovely card! I like all of the elements (especially that tiny little bow -- too sweet). I think your flower is quite lovely -- guess I need to research, too, because I can't say I know what a Prickly Pear looks like, either. No sweat, though, it is still quite a pretty card!
