Sending you sunshine - Freshly Made Skethes

Hello!  I found a challenge blog recently that is new to me.  Freshly Made Sketches #48.  They've got some great sketches, so I decided that it's time to join in :)

Here's my interpretation...

This card is going out to someone who has been dealing with some major health issues.  So, I wanted the colors to be soft and sunny.  And those sunflower stamps are fitting for this time of year, when summer is winding down.  After stamping the border of flowers, I swiped some frost white ink around the edges of the card base.  I also inked the edges of the brown card stock and my sentiment panel. If you click on a photo, for a larger image you can see that I also stamped the sunflowers in white on the sentiment panel.
The only embellishments are the 3 tiny pearls in the lower right corner.

Thanks for spending a little time here.  I hope you'll leave a comment...I love reading them :)
