FMS237 - Today Belongs to You

I love clean and simple sketches.  For me the challenge is to put across an idea or tell a story with the least number of images (or words).  The sketch at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge allows me to do that.
I love the clean lines of the sketch.  For my base I chose the Night of Navy.  I added a layer of Whisper White for my stamping and also a border to the right side of the Whisper White from the Affectionately Yours Washi tape.  I've had the sentiment forever and the tiny flower came with that stamp set, echoing the flowers in that Washi tape border.  Just for fun I added the butterfly from my retired Best Thoughts stamp set and a few splatters thanks to the wonderful Gorgeous Grunge set.  For my colours I used Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride, Night of Navy and, of course, Basic Black.


I hope you'll check out the other cards at the Freshly Made Sketches challenges.
