Simon Says ... Sketch & Crafty Creations #58


Hi girls. It's great to have you here on my blog. I hope if your looking for something to please the eye you will be able to find it here. My creations are for your perusal and hopefully for your encouragement and inspiration. I would get a lot of pleasure is I thought someone benefitted from visiting me here.
It looks as though Spring is really trying hard to break through and the temperature is rising (very slowly but definately rising). I hope things are looking up where you are.
This card was made with two challenges in mind. Simon Says gave a sketch to be followed and Crafty Creations wanted us to make our own flowers. I have used a Lili of the Valley stamp " Little Girl's Swing Time" and coloured her using my Polychromos pencils. the papers are Bazzil for the mounts and two kinds of Basic Grey's "Wisteria". The embellishments are from my stash and the flowers were, as required, made by myself. I enjoyed this challenge and hope you like the resulting card. It would be great is you had the time and inclination to leave a comment for me to let me know your views on this card. I enjoy reading them and get so much help from them.
Thank you for calling in and I hope in whatever you do today so have success and stay safe.
Hugs,

  11. Fiona this card is stunning. I am not normally a fan of blue but this has a really soothing effect, not sure if it is the blue alone or the combination of the colour with that gorgeous image.
