Coral Flowers

I'm back with a card using our latest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our hostess is the wonderful Jennifer Timko.  Her sketch freaked me out a bit, because me and ovals are not great mates!

So I took a sneaky route and tried to use the oval in the most unobscure way possible 😄

I dry embossed a stitched oval onto a white card base (sketch met!)  Then I colored and arranged some flowers around one side of the oval.  I was totally inspired by the colors in Debbie Olson's card here.

I finished the card with a simple sentiment and a few Jewel Drops.

Thanks so much for visiting.  The DT have put Jennifer's oval to great use so please check them out.

I'm linking this up to Cupcake Inspirations Challenge who have a floral theme.

I think you and ovals could become famous mates based on this gorgeous card, Karren! Embossing your stitched oval really made it pop and I LOVE your color palette on the flowers and stems...WOW!

Well I love your sneaky oval. It's subtle and looks great with your floral arrangement. The colors are unusual but look fantastic together!

Ha! You've totally nailed the oval - so now you have to agree that you and ovals are besties ;) Love all that white space paired with those pretty flowers.
