This sketch came from the Stamping 411 blog's Saturday Sketch Challenge. Loved the simple layout and turned it into another Mother's Day card (getting tired of them yet LOL!) though the sentiment could be changed to fit any occasion. I actually made two cards using different colour combinations but liked this one better so this is the one I'm posting.
The blank space in the top right hand corner was driving me nuts!! It needed something pink there, and after tying a ton of different things in that area including a bow, corner piece, half pearls, and various punched images, the only thing that seemed to even half way work were the flowers as per the card below. However, I think it is flower overload and they don't match the focal image flowers so I 'm still not happy with the card!
Just had a brainwave as I'm typing this - maybe a Martha Stewart corner punch would do the trick. Off to give it a try!
Have a blessed day and I hope it involves a bit of stamping :D
