Secret Garden Feel Goods Fab Friday Sketch Challenge

Good evening!  Another weekend has come to and end.  We had a great time celebrating Aidan's birthday but I know he's definitely happy to have an extra day off from school to recover, who knew a sleepover with friends could take so much out of you.  This evening I wanted to share the card I made for this weeks Fab Friday Sketch Challenge.  This challenge was lots of fun since it's a color challenge and given the colors I definitely wanted to make something cheery and Springy.  The card is so fun and uses lots of fabulous new products from the Spring catalog, including the Feel Goods stamp set, Secret Garden Stamp set and matching framelits (love that you can get the bundle for a 15% discount), as well as the Hexagon embossing folder (a must have item from the Spring catalog, the geometric patterns are a great contrast for the floral images).

After cutting out all the flower images I curled the edges with a bone folder and added Dazzling Details to the center of each flower so it has a little sparkle.  This card is so lovely and I love the messages in this stamp set, so uplifting.  We make a lot of cards but sometimes we get so busy that we only send them at major holidays and events and I'm working this year to send more handmade cards, just because since it's so awesome to receive a handmade and handwritten card and these messages are perfect for such occasions.  I hope you enjoy this weeks card, and feel free to play along and share your card as well.

Have a great week!
