Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge

Hello! I hope everyone is doing well today. I made a card for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge at http://kgiron.blogspot.com/. (Hope that link works, it's my first time doing that!) . This is what I came up with.

I made two extra flowers from the stamp and used pop dots to place them over the flowers I had already stamped on the paper to give some dimension to the card.

blue, purple, pink and white cardstock, Prismacolor colored pencils with odorless mineral spirits. (First time to do this technique. Totally AWESOME!!!!!!), Flower stamp by SandyLion, and a butterfly rub-on.
Before I go for today, I would like to thank everyone for their prayers for my son Reece. He will be having surgery tomorrow on his collar bone. Have a wonderful day. Lori
