I tried a few different things before I settled on this landscape version of the sketch, provided by Kathy Clark for Sketch Frenzy Friday.
HandStamped Sentiments came up with the colour combo. The dramatic Blackberry Bliss blossom paired with the soft green of Pear Pizazz are a match made in heaven. Even though it isn't very traditional, I'm rather fond of the Christmas version I stamped using Endless Wishes too! Maybe I will blog that one soon.
I ended up using leaves from Kinda Eclectic, they're quite similar to Summer Silhouette leaves, so either stamp set is great for background foliage. From my earlier attempts I've gone with the 'Less is More' theory, it tends to work better.
I made this card this morning, before going to the movies with a very good friend, and then rushing home for Grandma-time with Oliver, who has just spent a delightful two hours with us. The weather is perfect, the garden is a picture and I feel rested and relaxed, ready for work tomorrow. Hope you're feeling good too,
This pretty poppy greeted me this morning - so lovely!
