Tuesday Morning Sketch 439 and More

I almost didn't get a card made this week for the Tuesday Morning Sketch.  Between work, prepping for a class, a sick hubby, and more I've been feeling a bit stretched.  But I did get this one done and I love the simplicity.

Here is the challenge sketch:

And here is my card...

I decided to stay with a simple white with a touch of color.   I used only 1 color of card stock, Whip Cream.  It is hard to see but I embossed the 3 sections with our I Heart embossing folder and splattered with Sparkle Silk.  I tied some Whip Cream Thread around the card front.

I die cut another piece of Whip Cream card stock using our Ovals dies and piercing elements and used foam squares to adhere it (like I did the 3 embossed sections).  The only stamping is the cross and sentiment and I used 2 stamp bundles (stamps and coordinating dies), Easter Blessings and Hope Anchors (these 2 products are available through March 31) using Lavender Fusion ink.  I finished off the card with 3 Pearls in the upper right corner.

I just realized I didn't share an Easter card I made last week for another sketch challenge on FB through some fellow FSJ demos. I haven't even shared this on my FB page!  Oh, I'm slacking off!  LOL!

I used the same stamp bundle on this card but more of the stamps in the bundle and a sentiment from the Color Cross set. I used 4 card stocks, Whip Cream, Lemongrass, Sweet Pear, and Spring Filled Prints collection. I used an assortment of inks (and I don't remember which ones except for Black Licorice!), and a Fresh Cuts flower.

Here's a close up of the Fresh Cut flower and I added some swipes of Sparkle Silk to it for some pop.

Ok, this was a rather long post.  But head over to Tuesday Morning Sketches for lots of inspiration for the sketch and those who are playing along!
