Hello!  Today’s post is just a quick one to show off a rather clean and simple card using the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  Well, actually, if you look carefully at the curved area, I’ve used the mirror image of the sketch.  I had an embossed, curved piece of cardstock left over from another card I’d made some time ago, so all I needed to do with it was attach it to the card base and trim it down (it was originally about 5″ wide).  The sentiment fit nicely in the “dip” of the curve.  In an attempt to use some products I’ve had stashed around here for a long time, I’ve added some Prima flowers and glued Dew Drops in place for the centers of the flowers.  I’m not sure why the color is coming off of the Dew Drops but I like the variegated look it gives.  The soft color scheme and the flowers make me feel that the card also fits into the theme for the current challenge at AAA Cards so I’ll enter it there, too.
