My new catalog “My Friend” card features the Ornate Garden Suite from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. The beauty is you don’t have to wait for June 3, 2020, it’s available now for all demonstrators and customers alike.

The inspiration for today’s card comes from the TGIFC263 Sketch Challenge. Following a sketch is an easy way to jump start your mojo when you want to create a unique card for a special someone.

Blog Hop 1

I stamped the outline with Versamark and embossed with Gold before coloring the image using my blends. The doily was cut from the Bird Ballad Laser Cut Cards and colored in Purple Posy. The Champagne Rhinestone Jewels was just the right bling to bring attention to all those little posies. Hope you enjoy the card and will attempt the sketch this week.
