Sweet Sunday Sketch 112

Happy Sunday!  I hope you're having a great weekend I'm so happy we are actually having spring like temps this week - no snow storm!  Because of these temps and the sun shining I'm feeling like spring and all the flowers & green that should be coming (as soon as the snow goes!)  Here's Karen's sketch for this week:


We needed a sympathy card for a friend of ours whose mother passed away last week - she was an amazing woman who would have been 97 this June, and was the oldest person to carry the torch last year for the Olympics!  Hubby & I were both honoured to spend time with this special lady so with her in mind I made this card


The image is from Stamping Bella called Flower Garden and it's stamped with mementos ink onto bella's bestest paper and coloured with caran d'ashe pencils and mineral spirits.  In the centre of the flowers I added a little bit of glamour dust glitter.  On the old olive cardstock I used a birds and swirls cuttlebug folder.  I didn't add anything where the stars are; I just couldn't get anything to work with the tone of my card.

Please stop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers blogs to see their creations and remember to link your card on Karen's blog.


Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic Sunday - I'll be happily stamping (and skyping with my friend Leslie) and watching the Masters Golf; a perfect day!!
