Flowers Just For You

I’m so glad to be back for this week’s sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches!  Karren Johnson is our extremely talented designer and our host this week, and she’s created a wonderful sketch that has sooooo many possibilities.  This one will go into my ‘favorites’ file!  My card started with my desire to use the “Just for You” and “Happy Birthday” sentiments.  The garden just grew from there.


I chose the Melon Mambo and a combination of oranges to mimic a beautiful bouquet that my daughter sent me last week.  It’s so cheerful, bright, and beautiful with it’s hot-pink and orange flowers.


I wanted the sentiment to stand out, which isn’t easy when you’re competing with big, bold flowers, but a bright colored ink that was reinked with VersaMark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder made a statement.


I hope you enjoyed my card and are intrigued with Karren’s sketch.  Get more inspiration from the Design Team at Freshly Made Sketches, and play along with us this week!

    I don’t think it would ever have occurred to me to put orange and melon mambo together, but I’ve got to hand it to you – that is one fabulous color combo! And I think I spy a bit of Wink of Stella on those flowers, which really makes them sparkle and shine! What a beautiful card Cindy!

    Hot pink and orange look fabulous together! And your sentiment really pops, so mission accomplished, Cindy. In the first photo, I was looking really closely because it looked debossed – so much dimension!
