Cardabilities Reveal #122

Hello Dear Friends!
It is time once again for the new Sketch Reveal 
at the Cardabilities Sketch Challenge Blog.
I can't tell you how much I am enjoying being on this team and working with these beautiful sketches!

Today's reveal is #122 and here's the sketch ...

You will have until May 13th to join in our challenge and please be sure to review our rules.
One rule I'd like to mention is:  your entry can be shared with only 3 additional challenges in order for you to qualify for our prize. 

Our wonderful sponsor this challenge is Crafty City!
Lots of goodies and great prices!  Be sure to check 'em out!

As an AFTER THOUGHT I added a bird to my card.  It was an extra one I had laying on my work table and it just called out to me!  I think the card is beautiful with or without the bird.
What do you think?

And of course I had to finish off with inside with a coordinating sentiment and color panels.

Simple ... but effective!
I hope you will come join in this fabulous, fun challenge.

what a beautiful card! that is such a great sketch and you have used it so well here. I like your card both ways, but would probably lean toward the one with the bird, just because I LOVE birds! but both ways are gorgeous!

have a most amazing day, Darlene! :) said...

Oh girl, just look at that flower! It just jumps out at you and grabs you! I love the color and think it is just outstanding!

Jeannie said...

My goodness this is just stunning! That flower just pops off the paper and comes to life, and I could stare at it forever! By the way, I've started weekly challenges on my blog, so come on over and join me some time! I love your creativeness!
