Friday Sketchers challenge #2

...is a sketch by Beatrix!! She always has the most beautiful sketches!! Her sketch was made with a digital kit that I also had and downloaded!! !!
I remember thinking the paper was beautiful so I printed some on my computer and that is the paper I have used for my card today!! (It was a free download from Shabby Princess (I think that is what it is called). Anyway I decided to make my mom another card for her b-day. (The first one I made I thought would be better for my daughters to give her.) I went with this Tilda because that is what my mother LOVES best is getting dirty and gardening!! I used prima flowers and Heidi Grace brown brads. I (of course) distressed all the edges with distress ink. I think it makes the cut-out figure stand out better!! The dragonfly was a RAK sent to me and I thought this would be good for the theme of my card. I also used paper ribbon on the top and bottom edges. It is from K & Co.
Not really sure about it as I am not a fan of red and orange but I must admit that after getting into cardmaking I am starting to go for colors I never thought I would!! But my mother is not girly or picky so I am sure she will like it!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week-end!!!


P.S. Anyone get the new Sugar Nellies today!!! I sure did can't wait to get them!! I wished I lived closer! (LOL)
