Sunset

Hello All,

For today I am playing along with Color Throwdown and Freshly Made Sketches. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

The sketch reminded immediately reminded of a sunset
and thought the colors would be a perfect for these challenges.

Sentiment needed to be anchored. I did that by adding a white rectangle
with a flourish and stamped sentiment. The 'sending' is die cut in black.


Entering Challenge:
Freshly Made Sketches: FMS233
Color Throwdown: ctd389



Thank goodness I do not need to send this out! But when it does come time I am ready and set to go! Thank you for the inspiration and color combination. 

Well it is a late night and we are getting hammered by thunderstorms right now.. So I should probably get off the computer. Is that a wives tale? Not sure but just to be 'safe' I will sign off.. 

Take care everyone and thank you so much for joining me yet again at TheGrandStampede. I really do appreciate your visits and if you want to say hello that would be great too. If not no worries just thank you for stopping by. Until next time take care!

All the best,
Shawna

This is such a richly colored and beautiful scene - absolutely perfect as a sympathy card. Love the way you have done the sentiment. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
