A Happy Hello - CR84FN-58 & Freshly Made Sketches 42


I love it when when I can find a little time to participate in challenges! Especially when I get in a real creative zone! Today, I'm entering the challenges by CR84FN58 because I love the inspiring colour combo, one that challenges me, and Freshly Made Sketches 42 with their inspiring sketch.



I made this card to bring along on a visit to an elderly woman newly moved into a retirement home. She is also new to out congregation, and I wanted to give a little something when I go to see her next week. I hope she finds it to be a bright , cheerful, and happy greeting.

This card was also made up entirely out of scraps!

I would also like to mention that these beautiful carnation-like flowers I made after viewing Clare Buswell's tutorial here. Clare made it look so easy! I think that they will come together more quickly with repetition. Here is a close up of the carnations.


Thank you for popping by to have a look at my post, and hope that you have a great day. Oh, and happy crafting, too!






TOOLS & SUPPLIES


PAPER: scraps
STAMPS: Flourishes Medallion Motif (Sentiment)

I did try, Dana, but it just didn't look right until I backed everything with a red border. Maybe another time?
