Fabulous Florets Wednesday Sketch Challenge

Honestly, I do put this set away!  It does not sit out all the time, that is not the reason why I find myself using it a lot!  I just LOVE this set and I have to say that I have used every image in the set.  That is very unusual for me!  Most of the time there is just one image in a set that will call out to me and it's the one I will always use.  This whole set calls out to me.  I have had a lot of fun with this set.  And I'm still into making cards with flowers on them.  I glanced over at the Halloween stuff (and I did see Halloween and fall stuff in the fabric and craft store I shopped at tonight).  I went in for some "holds forever" glue and found myself in the clearance section!!!  So much for going in for the two items I had on my list!  But I did get some great deals!!  Anyway, back to my card!

I stamped the flowers with black StazOn and I cut each one out.  Good thing there were only 3 flowers!!  And the leaves were stamped in Garden Green ink and cut out too.  I didn't mind cutting the flowers but the leaves were a bit tricky because they were so much thinner.  

I thoroughly enjoyed making this card.  Everything went so smoothly on it too.  Ya can't ask for more than that!  

Once the flowers were cut out I colored them in with the Pretty in Pink marker.  I added a little highlight to them with the Regal Rose marker.  And in the centers I used Daffodil Delight.  It was pretty basic and easy coloring too.

The leaves were stamped on scrap card stock using Garden Green ink.  I liked these leaves but I honestly didn't care much for cutting them out.  Half way through the cutting I was thinking about just stamping them in place and setting the flowers on top.  But I wanted some of the leaf to hang over the #3 square and stamping them on wouldn't give me that look.  SO I continued to carefully cut the thin strips on the stem and when I got it all done and set in place I was glad I stuck with it!  And when I got the card all together I was pleased with the way it turned out.  

I have to admit, I've been a bit depressed since my KC died and I hadn't felt very creative either.  This card did help a bit.  I need to try to keep busy and stay focused!  I do thank you all for your kind emails, cards and posts to my blog, it was so kind of you.  KC was a remarkable cat and I will miss him for a very long time. 

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
Wanda

Another gorgeous card, Wanda. I have this stamp set and I love it also. I love your colors and how you placed the flowers....... I did something kind of similar, but used orange and yellow on my card. Thanks for sharing your darling card with us.
