Thank You {SSSC214}

Hi there and welcome to Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch! L.O.V.E. this week's sketch and I think you will, too. I hope you get a chance to play along!

For my card today, I used the new Gerbera Daisy Die-namics (Free with $60) from My Favorite Things. Rather than cut the flowers from a colored card stock, I cut them from Smooth White card stock and colored them with my Copic markers. Love the soft look it gives the daisy. I used the Leaf-Filled Flourish to cut the leaves from Sour Apple card stock. Each Primitive White Layer was dry embossed with the Large Chevron Stripes Stencil. The sentiment is from Lisa Johnson's new set, Beautiful Baby, and was stamped in Chocolate Brown ink.

This card was also created for the Stencils: Styling with Stencils Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

Here is my card:

I finished the inside with a cluster of hearts made with the two heart stamps from Beautiful Baby.


Here is this week's sketch:

This is so beautiful, Jackie! When I first saw the embossed chevron pattern I couldn't figure out how you did it, then I saw that you "dry" embossed, totally forgot about that technique, thanks for the reminder since I do have quite a few stencils!

Love the red and gold in the first card and the embossing of the stars.
The white on white is fabulous and the punch of color is stunning. Great cards.
