Just a Note card

 I wanted to play along with Freshly Made sketches for there birthday celebration so here is my card.  The sketch itself is extremely simple leaving it open to some creativity.  I put a piece of tape across my watercolor cardstock and added two different colors of Distress Stain on either side of the tape.  This did leave a white space down the middle so I took a stencil by Tim Holtz and added some dots with more Distress Stain.  
 Next I used a flower and stem stamp from Wplus9 Designs and just stamped it in black.  The middle of the flower was centered over one of the turquoise dots, the rest of the flower was not colored.  The sentiment is from that same set of stamps and I added a couple buttons to the middle of the flower.  
Here is the Freshly Made sketch.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
