Freshly Made Sketches #500

Congratulations to Freshly Made Sketches!! They are celebrating their 500th challenge.  They began in 2011 which is when I started my blog but my first entry in their challenge was in 2013.  My cards sure have changed since then.  I knew I had to help celebrate this milestone by making a card.

I cut my NBUS Climber Flowers from Altenew using several greens and pinks, with one pink forming a small border.  The strip is embossed with a folder from SSS and the sentiment is heat embossed on light gray.  I love how this turned out and can't wait to make more in different colors.

Here is the sketch my card was based on.

I'm so glad you dropped by.
