Hope your week has been moving along well so far! I finally got into my craft room yesterday (after way too many days away) and got right to work on this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I am the hostess this week and I went with a sketch that leave open space to be filled with whatever you want. I opted for this pretty flower from Altenew.
How is your crafty mojo when you have taken a big break from making stuff? I have to admit that mine seems to be a little slow off the starting block. So I went with my happy place and chose to watercolor. This flower from Botanical Garden (Altenew) is so pretty, don’t you think? I used my Zig Clean Color Pens to color it. The flower was first stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I think it adds an elegant touch. For the little sentiment banner, I pulled out a brand new stamp that I got from Skipping Stones Design called Healing Wings. I’ll be doing more with sets from this company in the upcoming weeks so stay tuned for more on that. I just thought this sentiment was perfect! Actually, I can see me using this sentiment A LOT!!! I added a strip of gold DSP down the side and put the card on a Night of Navy base.You can see the gold a bit better in this flat picture…it really adds a touch of elegance to an otherwise simple design. I hope that you enjoy this sketch. The team has done their usual amazing work and their interpretations are sure to inspire!

I love the sentiment as well…..so true! This is lovely! The gold with the navy is so elegant and I love the bright blue flowers!
This is beautiful and oh so elegant! The white space you’ve left on the main panel really helps draw the eye to that gorgeous flower.
That flower stamp is so very pretty and looks gorgeous with the gold embossing and that vibrant blue. Love the sentiment too x
I just love the gold on this. From the outline of the stamp to the gold strip down the side this is so elegant.
Such a pretty card Jen! I love those flowers! The colours are so rich! Love the gold embossing too! Just gorgeous!
This is lovely Jennifer! The gold embossing is such a striking touch and your colouring is perfect!
