Crisp, Cool Thanks

This is for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS. I just got some Basic Grey paper. . . Wisteria from the Lilykate Collection and I just LOVE it! I love the crisp, cool colors of it! So that's what a started with for the sketch challenge. I used my Fancy Florals set by Verve Visual. I just love these flowers and how they can look so different depending on how you layer them or which parts you decide to stamp. Instead of using one of the filler stamps for the focal flower, I watercolored it for a different look. For the frame around the sentiment, I used the small and large oval punch and then pierced it. Hope you are all having a great week!

We went to Savannah's preschool orientation last night and it was a BIG relief! The teacher and her assistants all came up to us at one point or another and said "Savannah's the one with the peanut allergy, right?" We didn't even have to mention anything, but everyone knew. I do have to say that I was reassured that she'll be fine and I shouldn't worry as much as I have. Well, thanks for stopping by today! I really appreciate it! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Fancy Florals (Verve Visual); Paper- Certainly Celery, Lovely Lilac, Basic Grey Wisteria, Whisper White; Ink- Certainly Celery, Lovely Lilac, Basic Black; Accessories- paper piercer, Aquapainter, rhinestone brad, purple Stickles, small and large oval punch, celery grosgrain ribbon.

These are great colors, love the card, I have to break out this set, just received it but have done nothing with it as yet. So glad that everyone knows about the peanut allergy.

LOVE this card - the colors are gorgeous! And I'm sure those preschool teachers don't want to have a peanut emergency on their hands any more than you do and are on top of it - but definitely understand why you have been worried!
