Mother’s Day Flowers

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:

And here is my take:

Mother's Day Flowers | by karen h @ carefree creations

Since I need to make a few mother’s day cards, I thought I should take advantage of such a versatile sketch and fill one of those slots.

I know the position of the leaves is a bit odd on the top flower, but I like the symmetry of having the top & bottom leaves in the corners.

I didn’t want to go black or brown for the sentiment – felt it was too stark. I found a dark purple that went well with the images and I’m really happy with that result. I positioned the sentiment die so it overlapped a couple flowers and the swoosh of the “y” goes to the edge of the card.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!
