For this week's card, I chose to make one from designer paper. This is from a Prima pad "Romance Novel" and the sentiment is one of those great Penny Black ones. I covered the card base with the floral print, and then cut the ledger sheet with a stitched rectangle die and tied a bow with skinny twine. The yellow dots are those pretty matte adhesive ones.

While searching for a shape for the focus on this card for Freshly Made Sketches, I "found" a large ziploc bag full of my "feathers" -- stamps and dies. I LOVE feathers, but I rarely use them, for some strange reason. I chose dies from Simon Says, designer paper from Posh "Simple Stories." The sentiment is from a large set of feathers stamps and sentiments by Gina K Designs.
I was pretty certain that I didn't own a bird image, stamp or die, but I found this sentiment/image combination from Technique Junkies that would work for this month's CAS Watercolour challenge.

I love Power Poppy's beautiful images, and I have many of the digi images. This is Graceful Still Life, which has a collection of images, including this beautiful branch of dogwood blossoms. I colored with Prima watercolor pencils and applied just a bit of water with an aqua pen afterwards. The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up! set. The odd placement of the pink dot near the sentiment was necessitated by stray ink from the edge of the rubber.

We just spent 3+ days on the west side of Oregon celebrating our granddaughter Ava's first birthday. What fun! This morning, I made a very simple card in time to mail to Chelsea.
The base of the card is one of those alcohol ink backgrounds created by Kennedy; I had backed it with black weeks ago, but hadn't decided how to use it yet. The image and sentiment are a set from Unity.

Less Is More provides a CASE card for the current challenge. It's a beautiful bunch of blue flowers.
I have a container full of Washi tape, a product that I rarely use, but enjoy buying! The new Freshly Made Sketches #331 is a perfect opportunity to use some of that tape on a card. The Penny Black die was another perfect addition, with a "hello" from a collection of word dies purchased from Blitsy.
