Freshly Made Sketches #82

Hello!  We have a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches today!  Jennifer Brum is our lovely, most talented hostess and I just love her sketch for this week!  With all the Mother's Day cards I saw submitted last week, I figured I need to get in gear and see what I could come up with.  And Jen's sketch was the perfect start!

I used a light gray damask patterned paper to add a touch of understated elegance.  I didn't want it to be the focus of the card.  Then I found the perfect flower in my Daydreamer stamp set from Papertrey Ink.  This is one of my favorite stamp sets and now there are matching dies - yay!  Yellow roses are my favorite flower so no hard decision there.  I am happy with how it turned out and I have Jen and her great sketch to thank!
Be sure to stop by Freshly Made Sketches and check out the wonderful creations from the Clean Team!  And please come and play.  I'd love to see your take on Jen's sketch!   

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
