Peace Within


Inspiration photoBlog-hop-logoRainy day, hubby has a bad cold & I have no motivation to do chores. That's my excuse for this last minute card for the PTI Blog Hop. I really did want to use a sketch & color combo--love them all!  

Color-recipe-2Sketchr-recipe-3
I used Harvest Berries & Through the Trees with Ripe Avocado & Distress Ink victorian velvet.  The stitched die is Lil' Inkers.  I silver embossed this lovely sentiment & popped it up.  
The card front is covered with a gray paper.  I really love how this turned out even though it's very simple. There's always so much inspiration in the Blog Hops, so thanks for taking time to check my blog.  One more card for the Anything Goes challenge at SSS Wednesday.

So pretty, Greta! I am so impressed that you are able to get such beautiful cards done for so many challenges. I love your take on this sketch. Lately, I've been struggling with no mojo and feel like I am in a rut with the same old stuff!
