Good Morning!

Here are a couple of flowery cards I have made recently...I am really looking forward to the green and flowers that the Spring will bring! Not to mention the warm :) Ahh.

This card started off based on last week's CPS sketch. However, it sort of evolved into something different. It was a great sketch though, I loved it!

Petersen-Arne CS, BG PP, Fancy Pants pins, CTMH tag, Melissa Frances rub on.

Next, is my card for Sketch This! I struggled at first with what my interpretation of the sketch was going to be. I had a completely different card which I put together, took apart and then put together again. Eventually I scrapped the whole thing! Haven't done that in a while. Anyway, then I came up with this:


I was much happier with this attempt :)

SEI (pink) CS, BG PP, Wrights trim, BG chipboard flower and rub on, Mark Richards pearls.

I'd better run....it's almost time for me to go pick up my little man from preschool.

Have a great day~
Katie

Pretty flowery cards Kate! I haven't completely trashed a card in a bit but I totally know what you mean about some ideas just don't work. I think these are lovely. I like the flower lace you used on the second card a lot!
