The perfect sketch for a special card.

My good friend Meg's birthday is coming up and she is one of those people who loves getting a handmade card for her birthday and other special occasions. She has actually kept all the handmade cards I have given her over the years. I did this card following this week's Jacksonbelle sketch. It was very easy to work with. I went for a feminine look by using light pink, a flower and lace. Very happy to have this card done in time, for once it's not a last minute rushed job.

Superb card! I really enjoy the pps and the use of a flourish for the stem on your flower. The soft tones are refreshing.
