Here's my contribution to this week's Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge #258.
Floating Watercolor Pansies inspired by the Johnny Jump Ups that are growing in a container on my front porch. (Click here for full instructions) It had been a particularly rough morning as I had a slight melt down (my poor husband!) when I couldn't lay my hands on a certain insurance form we needed to finish filing the insurance claim for our garage fire. Long story short, later as I was watering the containers, I spotted this pretty face and had to take a picture to share with you. It brought a much needed smile!
Floating Watercolor Pansies are so easy to create. Click here for full instructions.
Here is the original sketch:
I really like this sketch. Sketch instructions said to make the card base 4 1/2" square. I made mine 4 1/4" square so it would easily fit in a regular invitation sized envelope.
