One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Freshy Made Sketches # 188

There is a sketch up for the new Freshly Made Sketches.
I decided to do the partial die cutting again with a butterfly for my design.
Since I wanted a sympathy card, I wanted to keep it pretty simple.
I sponged on the background with some distress inks.
Here is the sketch and all the info for this challenge

Now that I look at it I think I need some sequins, so I think I will add those!
Thanks for taking a look!
This is my last full day with Linda...we have been having fun trying new techniques and playing with water brush pens.  It is always fun to be inspired by a good friend!


  1. What a beautiful card. I love the partial die cutting technique.

  2. Very pretty, Colleen! Love the partial die cut with lovely background and sweet butterflies! Glad you had a great time crafting with your friend!:-)

  3. I'm so glad you were able to combine the trip with a stay at Lin's, Colleen! I love imagining how much fun you two have when you're together! You certainly both have mega talent when it comes to your card art!! Hugs, Darnell

  4. Beautiful card, Colleen! The background is so soft and dreamy and I love the look of the partial die-cutting. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
