This one fits better

Now, this one fits Makeesha's sketch challenge better! Here's her sketch







And here's the latest card


I coloured the flower from the retired set All The Best with Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery markers, rock'n'rolled the flower in Rose Red and added a clear round rhinestone brad for the flower middle. I swiped the edges of the Whisper White in Pumpkin Pie and lightly sponged the edges before piercing them, adding a couple of Certainly Celery brads and mounting this on Pumpkin Pie card. I used the Weathered background stamp on Certainly Celery base card and also swiped the edges. I added some 5/8" Certainly Celery grosgrain and Bashful Blue grosgrain ribbons, as well as felt flowers with Certainly Celery brads for the Rose Red flowers and a Bashful Blue one for the Pumpkin Pie and mounted this all on a Rose Red card base.

I'll be sending this to someone I know who's a bit under the weather at the moment -
I hope it brightens her day!
