I needed a birthday card for a new workmate. It HAD to have a flower because she is a master gardener. I haven't seen her garden yet but she's invited is all over in August for a garden party. I do know she's in the garden from the time she gets home until dark and then 8-10 hours a day on Saturday and Sunday. I deliberate went for a fun and graphic flower - I didn't want to go for anything realistic and then get the coloring or something wrong - because she would know!

Freshly Made Sketches: Summer Blooms
It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Jen Mitchell.
Sadly, it took me four tries to get the placement right in the frame. I had to force myself not to go for five, because I really wanted to move the leaves down so there was a little more weight on the bottom panel! I love building sets like this one, but they stress me out. That simple flower took 11 stamps and without a doubt, every darn time one won't stamp clearly or will be crooked - and I am just too obsessive to let that happen!
I'm looking forward to seeing what you all create with this week's sketch!
