Love You


It's such a beautiful day today. Not at all like our winters in the valley.
Plenty of cool, crisp sunshine has me dreaming of my roses' first blooms.

PapertreyInk has a sketch challenge on their blog celebrating their 
11th Anniversary!


Each of the team members has a sketch recipe for us to choose from,
and I chose Dawn McVey's.


I loved Dawn's arrangement of flowers and layers on a stenciled 
background, and had fun with combining Farmer's Market Florals with
Dawn's own Gran's Garden leaf fronds.


I created the stenciled bg with one of the Modern Background Stencils,
inked with Distress Oxides: Peacock Feathers & Frayed Burlap.
The 'love you' banner is from Stemmed Statements with a sentiment from
You Have My Heart.


Here's a peek at the inside, stamped with images from You Have My Heart.


Sending this card out today, so I did a coordinating envelope, and inked the edges.

Thank you for visiting today, and hope your day is a 'crafty' one!
