Welcome to the latest sketch from the team at Freshly Made Sketches, where this week our hostess is Amy O'Neill.

I used some washi tape for the panel behind my cut-out oval.  This is the Nebula washi tape by Altenew but I think it works well here behind this beautiful magnolia.

I stamped and die-cut the magnolia and adhered it over the cut-out opening.  I then added foam tape behind the panel and magnolia and adhered it to the card base.  A very simple card.

I hope you'll check out the cards by the rest of the DT - they're gorgeous as usual.

Thanks for visiting.

Wow! Karren! Simplicity is not that easy in card making! Your "simplicity" tends to perfection. This magnolia over the black opening is absolutely beautiful.
