Happy Saturday, peeps!  Got a busy day planned, so this will be quick!  I am using the Freshly Made Sketches for a birthday card…here’s the sketch:
And here’s my card:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Violet Birthday Stampin

I used an older Flourishes set, stamped it in Stazon on watercolor paper and colored it with Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz and a little Old Olive:

It’s been a while since I colored anything this large, I really enjoyed it.  Since the image was fairly large, I made a custom-sized card as well as an envelope to match (which I forgot to photograph!!!).  That Envelope Punch Board makes creating custom envelopes a snap!  I used some retired Wisteria Wonder DP as well as some older SAB ribbon.  Some pearls finished it off.  Thanks for stopping by today!  And be sure to stop by tomorrow for my Paper Players creation!

Coloring!!!

Beautiful card! I can't wait to see the violets in the yard. We still have dirty snow.
Love your little artist. She is so into what she is doing.
Happy Saturday!

Your violets are beautiful--can't wait to see them here in real life! It's been a long winter, and we still have a lot of snow on the ground along the road and in the woods.

Sigh. I'm really gonna miss Flourishes. This set is one I'd have loved to have, but didn't act on fast enough. You've done beautiful justice to it! Maybe we'll be seeing flowers like this soon enough in our gardens, eh?

A beautiful card! You mentioned envelopes...what paper
Do you use? I like Paper Source text weight but would like something a little heavier.

A fresh and pretty card! I love the quick and simple sketch they offered up. Sometimes you need to go quick and easy. Remember when all those big stamps were the rage? Now they seem so awkward to use, but you've done this one proud.
