Tuesday Morning Sketches #621

 Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  I appreciate your visit.  The latest sketch is up and it's by Debbie Foster.  It's a great sketch and I really loved playing with it.

My card features some paper from Moda Scraps that I got in a Simon Says Stamp monthly kit.  Spellbinders Apr 2019 small (?) die of month dies.  I really can't remember if this this small or large.  Personally, with all the flowers in this one, I'd call it large but Spellbinders is pretty generous in their monthly kits.  Anyway... let's take a look at the card.

Isn't that paper gorgeous!  I just love it.  And the die cut flower ties in well with that paper.  The sentiment is from the same DOM and I cut it out 3 times, I thought I'd have the blue on top but then I really liked the white using the blue as a drop shadow.  The flower and leaf layers I cut from white card stock and using two sets of Altenew inks, I colored each of the layers.  I finished it off by adding white dots with my white gel pen.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with my card.  And pretty happy that I did a little more stash busting.

So I am one happy mama at the moment.  My son, who is in the Navy, finally got leave!  I only have him for a week, but I'll take it!  It's been nearly 2 years since I last saw him in person so I am on top of the world.

Please head on over to the TMS blog, see what beautiful cards the team made to share with you.  Leave them some love!  See you there.
