Cherry Blossom Hello!

Cherry-Bloossom-Hello

Hi friends!
Just a quick post tonight! I wanted to play in Flourishes release week sketch challenge but I'm getting ready for the family to get here and I am rushing... so this is pretty CAS for me. However... it did get done in the midst of a pretty busy day of cleaning! LOL! So.... here is my Get Sketchy Entry. I used Flourishes Cherry Blossom set, Flourishes white card stock, and the designer paper is Prima Annalee. I stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copics, then highlighted with Spica pens for some shimmer. Sorry you can't see that in this night time photo. The butterfly is from some blog candy I won from Heather! Thanks so much Heather!!!

Thanks for stopping by! Come play along for a chance at the new release!

Hello, Grace! I haven't been by for a few days so I thought I would check in while I'm up very late working on a project to see what you've been up to. All of your cards for this past week or so have been absolutely stunning! Your designs are always so elegant, I just know that God guides your hands. I have missed seeing your work at Amber's challenge this week.

Take care,
Anne
