Freshly Made Sketches #245

Jen, I'm popping over with a card made from some little snippets left over from my week ... they've come together in a slightly different arrangement of your fab sketch, but I know you won't mind one bit!  [she says with hope in her heart.]


 
 
My love of the Neat n Tangled Scandinavian Prints hasn't waned since my Mix it Up challenge day ... here's what I was able to do with a few blooms, and a little leftover Lola's vase from Winnie & Walter for FMS245:
 
Altenew inks from the Red Sunset collection,
and a sweet little Cuttlebug chevron embossing folder for my 'panels'
 
The most wonderful thing about making a 4.25" square card is the ability to let a few things hang over, as do my flowers.
 
This is leaving me smiling, and ready for the weekend, folks!!
 
Thanks for all your visits this week!  xx
