Freshly Made Sketches: Get Well Daisy

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Cindy Hall.



As much as I love holidays cards - Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, then a quick break before Valentines and Easter - I really enjoy those times when I have absolutely no specific requirements. I started this sketch by digging through my unused stash and found the sentiment. I knew it wouldn't fill the entire center panel, so I added my favorite daisy which I thought would make a cheerful get well!

FMS Get Well Daisy

I love filling in the petals on this daisy with a variety of cheerful colors and patterns, so I decided to go basic black and white with the rest. I love the pop of color - I hope it brings a smile!

I hope to see you playing along this week. Browsing the gallery is a high point in my week.  I learn so much from seeing what each of you do with the sketch!

Looks like it's time for my to go shopping at PTI because I just fell in love. I think that if this card would have been done in any other way than how you did it, I might have been safe from the enabling, but this card is so fantastic. It caught my eye and grabbed my attention for a long study the moment I saw it. I love the style of the flower along with the perfect colors that you chose, and next to the black and white, it's a showstopper!

Definitely smiling! The gingham and the watermelon are the perfect compliment to that gorgeous flower. And I can see why you love this sentiment. It's probably one I should add to my stash! Very sweet card, just love it!! Bev

Fabulous card, Kim! You reminded me that I've got this sentiment set and don't use it. It is such a unique and interesting sentiment set that really draws the eye. Love that colored flower too - so pretty!

I can see why you love that daisy so much. It's perfect for showing off the different colors and patterns! And I love it with the simple black and white gingham paper.
