Sending smiles

My card sales have gone well this season - I sell at a small craft fair, held in our RV park every other Saturday.  It is all I can do to keep a decent stash, and fill several special orders.  Thinking of you cards go fast - so many in our age group are seriously ill.
I used Mardi Gras colors, purple, green and yellow (gold) for this challenge:

The sketch:  ://

I usually struggle with small squares, but I am pretty happy with this result.  The vine image is from the Rubber Cafe, and the sentiment is Dandelion Designs.  I colored with a green chalk pastel crayon and gold gel pen.  I added some ribbon and purple rhinestones.


  1. Very sweet and I do like the Mardi Gras colors! Thanks so much for joining us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

    Peace & Luv,

  3. yes, Dorothy, the right click and copy should work....but sometimes internet explore and blogger has other ideas. It doesn't always work but should. Your card is beautiful. I love the vine you have used to trail down the squares. It is lovely. Such a nice take on the sketch. Thanks so much for joining us.
