Tuesday Morning Sketches #476

Hello - thank you for stopping by!  This week's sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and I think it's a fun one.  I actually don't remember what I was picturing in my head when I drew this one, but I when it came time to sitting down and making a card I had one idea in my head that went in all sorts of directions.

My first card ended up in the trash!  I played with the Mandala Maker stamp set which turned out fine but when I started adding elements and it just went downhill from there.  It went bad to worse!  So I my second card first.

I'll still show my card that is a bit closer to the sketch.  I made this sympathy card to send to my former mother-in-law.  Her mother passed away this past Friday.  My card features Stippled Flowers by Gina K.  I got this stamp set a long time ago and never really did a lot with it. So it was time to pull that out.  The prayers sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.

I love this autumn color palette I chose to work with.  I used these colors with my 1st card and decided since it was all out, I'd continue with it.

Here's my 2nd (my 1st actually) card - this one is a looser version of the sketch.  This card features Beautiful Flowers from Simon Says Stamp. Another one I haven't used a whole lot.  The sentiment is from Mondo Sakura by Ellen Hutson.

The background stamp is from Raisin Boat stamped with Barely Beige ink by SSS.  I stamped the floral spray onto card stock and colored with various Copics.  I only cut the top part of the image and matched the lower left corner of the card base.  I used the Wonky Stitch ovals die from Kat Scrappiness to make the burgundy mat and a stitched oval for the white base. 

I hope you enjoy my cards and that I will see you over at the TMS blog.
