Thankful for a sketch

I am always thankful for a sketch because it's the part of card making I struggle with the most.  DeNami Design has a Sketch Challenge this month (see below) so had to play along... this is what I came up with. Thanks to the fabulous DT at DeNami for a great sketch and fabulous inspiration cards!

Really love this flowered paper... it's 100% not my colours but there's just something about it that works.... would you agree?

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.... really wishing mine was a bit longer right now.  Been crafting a lot (read: avoiding cleaning my house) and helping hubby with car repairs (read: putting my foot on a break pedal).

  2. Glenda, that paper is fabulous!!! What a gorgeous card. Fantastic take on the sketch! Thanks for playing along with DeNami Design!

  3. Glenda, this is JUST BEAUTIFUL! I LOVE the colors, the patterned paper, and the way you stamped the daisy in between the words "warmest" and "wishes"!! Thanks for playing along in the DeNami Design Sketch Challenge!! And I'm definitely in favor of crafting over cleaning the house any day!!!! Good job!

  4. this is just so pretty...love that sentiment and great paper choices..

  5. I love the upright sentiment, so unique. Great colors, and I love how the daisy stamp fits perfectly in between the sentiment.

  6. I get what your saying...not colors I would have picked, but yeah, I'm feeling that paper anyway...it's pretty. Love how you tied the sentiment and patterned paper together with the daisy stamp...such a pretty card.

  7. I love this card, Glenda! The colors are fabulous!

  8. Hi, Glenda!! Those really are fabulous colors in that pretty patterned paper you used :). I love how you let it do the talking in your use of the sketch. And really, how *perfect* is that upright sentiment for this layout? You were a genius to pull it out for this lovely card. :D

  9. I agree with your thoughts on the paper! Lovely card, everything works so well together ;)

  10. This card is lovely, Glenda! I'm loving the sentiment you used for this card- it works great with this sketch!
