Have a special day

Hi Guys,

I hope you all had a great weekend and had lots of time to stamp. My weekend flew by between teaching on Saturday, and, Sunday was spent with my kids and grand-daughters. We had a blast.

There have been such fabulous challenges and sketches in blogland lately. I fell in love with this one sketch by Mercy, and I was so inspired by a card my friend Irene made, that I just had to try it out and see what I could come up with. This is the card I am posting . What do you think ?

I used a Hero Arts thistle stamp and coloured it with a Dove Blender and metalic Pebbles chalk. I also glittered it with glamour dust. The polka dot image is by Great Impression and I used soft baby blue by Memories. I wanted a very soft and subtle look on the kraft card stock.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

This card really appeals to my Scottish heritage, Nicky - I love that stamp! The colours are so soothing and pretty and I agree that the sketch layout is fabulous. Great job!
