  All week, I have been trying to make a card for this week's  CAS-ual Friday's sketch challenge.  I knew exactly what I wanted to do, but spent too much time either creating my card for PTI's Blog Hop or hopping on the blog commenting on everyone's beautiful cards.
Here's the sketch.

   Needless to say, I missed the deadline. I have a hard time getting good pictures with artificial light. I had to take the photo today with daylight.  Maybe that will teach me. The card is for my future daughter-in-law's bridal shower. Keeping with the theme of the invitation and set of notecards I made her, this is the card I created.

 Here's a close up of the peonies. The one in the forefront is propped up with dimensionals.

   Thanks for peeking. I am off to start a crafting project for my son-in-law who is going to be participating in the Flying Pig Marathon in Cincinnati on May 6th.

PTI's April Blog Hop

The 25th is one of my favorite days of the month since PTI sponsors their monthly Blog Hop. Welcome to the April Blog Hop.  This month the focus is on florals, damasks & polka dots based on the inspiration picture below.
