Freshly Made Sketches 248 Brighter Days

Today I decided to go with a sketch for Freshly made Sketches. It's been quite a while since I've done one there and I might have gone a bit overboard with the embossing folder, but.......................

Cute and simple sketch. If you love making clean and simple cards then this is the challenge for you.
I used the Petals folder and colored it by using my brayer on the background side.   Try both sides of your folders, you never know what you might discover.

I used one of the Host sets in the new annual catalog for this, Gift of Love, but the sentiment is from Weather Together, which came just in time as I was finishing up my card.
I used the Layering Ovals and sponged some color on the outside of the oval.

I hope you like.  Thanks for stopping.

Colors for this are: Whisper White Elegant Eggplant and Mint Macaron. The flower is watercolored onto Watercolor paper.   But it is a 2 step stamp so you don't have to.

Really love this card, Lynn! The brayering on the backside of that folder cast it in a whole new light for me, so now it's a "gotta have", instead of a "maybe". Excellent coloring on the image, too!

Nothing overboard about that pretty panel! Did you just ink the folder? Looks beautiful!!
