So It's Not the Wednesday Sketch Challenge!!!

Does this look like the Wednesday Sketch Challenge to you?  Why no it doesn't!!!  I didn't have time to play with it and I'm hoping to later in the week. 

I had seen this fun and pretty card by sleepyinseattle on SplitCoastStampers and I was in need of a get well card. I thought that this card would be perfect.  It is a very quick and easy card to make too.  You can see her card here

I did stamp the flower with black StazOn ink.  I then used the blender pen and the following markers:  Wisteria Wonder, Daffodil Delight, More Mustard and Bashful Blue.  I am not sure if that is the colors that were used in the original one but they seemed to have worked for me!

The focal panel is set in place using Dimensionals.  I liked that added look to the card. 

I suppose I could have gone in my stash of cards and found one but you know me, I like to make a "fresh one" when I need one!!!  I don't know why that is but I do it every time I need a card.  I have two drawers full of cards and I need to go though them.  My plan is to pull out the ones I don't want in there anymore and put them in the spring garage sale.  I use to donate TONS of them but (being greedy here) we can't file long form anymore so I thought I'd just take the money instead!  

If you are in need of a quick card that would work for several other occasions, this one is the way to go.  Oh, I almost forgot to mention this, the stamp set I used here is the hostess set "Faith in Nature."  I haven't used it much but I am planning on making a couple more cards with it.  There's two more images in the set that I have not uses.  I'm on a mission to try to use all the images in a set!

I've got a few more Valentine's Day gift items coming up so be sure to stop back to see them!!! If you are making them along with me I suggest you find a basket to hold them all in!!!  You don't want to get caught on Valentine's Day without it!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
