Tuesday Morning Sketches

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

It was a week ago today that we had the "big" snow storm that shut down most of the northern east coast. A week later our snow is almost melted and my spring bulbs are once again poking their heads out of the ground. I know spring can still give us some unsettled weather but my hope is that the nice weather will soon be on our doorsteps!

Today I am playing along with the new sketch this week for Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Here is the design...

And here is my take on it!

I always love a card with a tilted panel on it because it just gives it some interest!
I started out by coloring my Cherry Blossoms with Copics but I wasn't keen on the bold colors so I went with embossing the image in white embossing powder for a softer look and I love it!

Tuesday Morning Sketches Card:

Stamps: Indescribable Gift
Ink: Versamark
Cardstock: Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Whisper White, Best Year Ever DSP (SAB 2015)
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Crisp Cantaloupe Twine, White Pearls, Glue Dots, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

The inside says "Wishing you all the beautiful blessings of Easter".

Hope you enjoyed my card today!


My thoughts today...

Enjoy the day, everyone & thanks for stopping by!

Since I just painted my stamp room in coral when we redid it, I enjoy what looking at this color does for me. Your card is lovely and it just gives me a big sunny smile! Have a great day, Wendy!

Those 2 colors you used really look great together and I'd have never imagined them side by side and looking so pretty! I too like the white embossed image, and that little twine bow is just the cutest thing! Pretty card!

So beautiful! I love the white embossing, too. You could do some highlighting with a white colored pencil. That would look great, too. The color of your cards is stunning. Thank you for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.
