Tuesday Morning Sketches #146

Good Morning TMS Fans!

I'm sorry I missed last week - just had too much on my plate. This week won't be much better. The end of the school year is always very busy and on top of it I woke up sick this morning and now I have a very serious sore throat!

We have a wonderful sketch this week and a returning sponsor - DRS Designs. A big thanks to them for sending me this gorgeous stamp to play with. I chose this gorgeous Dogwood Branch stamp. Next to daisies and orchids these are my favorite flowers. I was excited to learn that they come in pink! I had to add the brown because the dogwood I've seen has always been an dark ivory nearly brown color. I just love how these came out.

I'm thinking I should have taken another photo and gave you a side view. I layered the flowers and different levels and you really can't see that at this view. I know the bow is not part of the sketch, but I love bows on my cards. I love this brown - I need to shop for more!


I hope you'll play along with us this week. Here is today's sketch and be sure to check our DRS Designs. Also, please be sure to stop by the DT and leave a little love. 

Have an awesome day!!

Wow, this is stunning Theresa! My mom always loved dogwoods but could never get one to grow for her. It's funny, when we moved into this house there was one in the center of the front yard (always makes me think of my mom when it blooms). It's the same color as the way you've colored these blooms. This is gorgeous, love everything about it.

Hope your sore throat goes away quickly.

Dogwoods always make me think of home - they're the provincial flower of BC :) Love the frames underneath the flowers - the edges are so neat! And, stop apologizing for being behind on commenting - I can't believe you're managing at all, what with all the year-end chaos of teaching! I hope that sore throat hits the road pronto.

Fantastic color palette, Theresa. Love the shading on those beautiful dogwood flowers. I am a "earth tone" person, so I love the brown.
