IT IS SNOWING TODAY and I am crafting! OWH Sketch Challenge 71

IF YOU ARE ON THE OWH MEMORIAL DAY BLOG HOP, PLEASE SCROLL DOWN A  LITTLE TO SEE MY ENTRY!

Who can believe that it would snow on Memorial Day weekend when we are supposed to be barbequing, but here is the picture taken from my craft  area window earlier today! That "foggy, blurry" look is snow falling through the air! Can you believe it? At 5:30 this morning, I was outside in my robe taking down my hanging baskets of flowers and pulling in the flats of petunias to be planted this afternoon. Since that is not going to happen, it is time to craft!


Here is today's sketch:

and here is my card:

The flower is a digi stamp being offered as a Dollar Digi for $1.00 at Stretch and Bubbles. I colored it with Copics and used brown Liquid Applique in the center. It was a fun digi to work with, it was easy to do, and I feel like I ended up with a beautiful flower. The CS is Gina K Designs Sweet Corn, Cranberry Tart, and Black Onyx; the DP is from the Best of  K&Co collection. The ribbon is from my stash.

Here's hoping you have a really wonderful week!

    Love your card, especially how you used the flower. Sorry about the snow but it is a good reason to stay in and craft. Cold, windy and cloudy here in the desert only 63 today. :-)
