Freshly Made Sketches and Florals

Hello Hello!
Well, here we are in the month of July, ready to celebrate the birth of our nation (if you live in the states).  Where did June go, lol?!?
We have a new sketch for you at Freshly Made Sketches; Jen is starting us off this month
with a great sketch, one that I know I will return to again and again.  

I was completely lacking in MOJO, so I actually dug out some images that I had previously watercolored with my Arteza Brush Pens. Arteza has a sale going on right now-20% off- so if you were thinking about checking them out, you might want to head over there.

 These Altenew images from the Crown Bloom Stamp set worked perfectly for this sketch.
I sponged the background with Lawn Fawn Merman ink and a A Colorful Life Designs stencil, Currents.
Next, I die cut a large circle and then a circle frame, slightly smaller that the first.  Everything was adhered to the card front with dimensional tape being used for the flower and leaf.
Lastly, 'love' was die cut 3 times and stacked on each other (Altenew brand).  It was adhered to the front of the card with dimensional tape as well.
I am linking up to Watercooler Wednesday's Feminine Anything Goes Challenge,
As well as Inkspirational's challenge-

And The Paper Players tic tac toe- flower/yellow/die cut

Check out the blog for more inspiration.  These ladies always inspire me.

Thanks for stopping!
