Cheery Note

I often send cards to the homebound members of our congregation and when I saw this sketch from Sweet Sunday, I knew I could do a cheery card with it.



Sometimes I have a difficult time figuring out what I want to do with a sketch but an idea popped into my head the minute I saw this one.


It was really the paper that spoke to me.  I got it from an online site (I don't remember where) and the paper is rather thin and doesn't cut well on the Cricut.  I want to use it up so have been using it for backgrounds.  The flower cut in the middle is from Straight From the Nest on plain white cardstock.  Next time I do something like this, I'll make sure that the petals are even numbered so it comes out better.  It's okay for a real flower, since they are uneven, but for placing a "note" on top, it isn't the best.  The circle in the center is cut from George and cuttlebugged with Seeing Spots.  The sentiment was printed on the computer using a pink color to coordinate with the bottom layer of the note and the stripe in the background.  I really do think it is cheery.
