Hi and welcome! Today's card uses the latest sketch from the team at Freshly Made Sketches, where hostess Jennifer Timko has given us an oval to play with.
For some reason, I am not a fan of ovals - probably because I can never get them straight. I decided to work with some products from The Greetery and create an almost one-layer card featuring a sort-of oval shape. The original stencils create an arch design, so to make it look more like an oval, I stenciled and stamped the left-hand of the card then flipped the stencils to mirror image the right-hand side.
Once I was finished stenciling and stamping, I selectively stamped part of the arched sentiment and did some subtle ink-blending to define the shape more. I finished with a die-cut and stacked sentiment.
Please be sure to check out the fabulous cards made by the design team.
Happy Little Stampers stencil challenge.

What a gorgeous way to use Jen's Sketch, Karren! WOW this is pretty! [looks like I should have borrowed this set from Marcia, too!]
A really pretty card...your "oval" shape is a really good idea.
Okay this is absolutely stunning! I love those flowers and the colours and how beautiful it looks hugging that oval! Amazing!
What a creative take on the sketch! I agree, it's hard to get ovals straight. Pretty card, Karren!
Cleverly done Karren. It's a stunning card.
I LOVE how you used this set! It looks beautiful turned this way! An awesome "un-oval" card, heee :)!
What a wonderful use of the 'arch' to create this wonderful oval card
Absolutely amazing! I love your floral sprays, and the sentiment is perfect!
This is downright brilliant! I love how you used that stencil and the flowers are amazing!
