Mother's Day Sketch Challenge

I am playing along in this sketch challenge this week for Mother's Day. I had so much fun making this card but I struggled at the same time. I tried some new techinques that didn't quite work out the way I thought they would. I had to cover up a few "holes" where my sewing machine decided to LOCK UP! and I had to pull the card out and start over. I thought I would never finish the card it is and I am pleased. I just love the Bloom and Grow collection of paper by My Minds Eye! Such a scrumptious collection of paper!! Can't get enough. And then the dreaded picture...they just never do my cards justice.

  1. Looks great, thanks for sharing!

  2. Beautiful card, Jen! Thanks so much for playing along with the sketch challenge. Hope you have a wonderful week! Hugs!

  3. I can totally relate to the sewing machine frustrations. My machine is celebrating its 40th birthday this year. You could never tell that it was a struggle. It's a beautiful card. Love that Bloom & Grow.
