Tuesday Morning Sketches #344

Hello!  Thank you for stopping by!  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches, brought to you by Debbie to inspire you.  It certainly did me.  I kept my card very simple because it's for a friend mine.  He's celebrating his 25th birthday and I find keeping masculine cards simple works the best for me.

Our sponsor this week is Di's Digis and she's offering a $12 voucher for the prize.

My card features a wonderful stamp set from MFT stamps that they retired years ago.  It's called Flower Silhouette and it came with a matching die.  I did extend the stem by cutting the flower out twice, removing the bloom and just using the stem.

Last week, Jenee made a card using paper from the Latte stack by DCWV and it reminded me that I have a lot of the left and I haven't used it in awhile.  The color palette is perfect for a guy card.

The border is also from MFT stamps and I believe retired.  The labels I have no idea who they're by.  They came with the magnetic platform I bought years ago and never used.  I eventually gave that to my sister.

I do hope to see you over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Have a great week!  Happy Easter.

Hi Melissa,

Gosh your floral almost resembles a dandelion - which are my FAVORITE spring flowers, always so bright and cheerful and they make me feel like laughing. Your card is a JOY!

Very pretty card, Melissa. Like that double circle border across the card, and the single flower is stunning simplicity.

Very fresh & pretty card Melissa. Pulling out and using old stamps can be a challenge in itself for me sometimes but you have inspired me to play with some of my older treasures.
