Sweet as Sweetpeas

      I can hardly believe that I've done 4 daily posts in a row!  I'm beginning to get back to my normal "every day" postings and, in my mind, that means my COVID recovery is moving right along.  :-D

     This is my card for the monthly challenge over at Beccy's Place where the theme is "Anything Goes" but there's an optional theme of flowers, plants, & foliage.  I used Beccy's Sweetpeas image, which I think has been retired.  I took the shortcut of using a pre-colored image and it's really gorgeous!  I'm sorry for the glare on the photo but the green background is metallic CS and every photo I took had that shiny glare.  :-(

I used the sketch from The Outlawz

What a pretty bouquet of sweet peas. Don't see them a lot in gardens any more. Glad you are feeling better, it is a slow and one day at a time recovery. Thanks for joining us over at The House that Stamps Built.

Good to hear that you are starting to feel much better.
Lovely card NanaConnie. I like the image you used - I must have missed that one when it was in the shop.

I'm so glad to hear that your recovery is moving forward. I look forward to the day I pop over and read that you only have distant memories of this evil, with no lasting effects at all.
What a beautiful card, and a great idea to use the pre-coloured image. Such pretty colours! A wonderful interpretation of the sketch. Thanks for sharing this with us at Penny's!

Purple and green always looks pretty together NanaConnie, and it's even better with the addition of the neutral grey. I love how the circle frame contrasts with the angled cardstock pieces in the corners too, and the metallic background gives your card a lovely shine. Well done!

This is so pretty!! Such a beautiful image and the purple and green are great together! Perfect take on the sketch, as well. Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.

Nana Connie this is so pretty. I admit that when I can I use the pre-coloured images also. Saves a lot of time and then my hands don't hurt as much. Thanks for sharing over at Crafty Gals. Best of luck, DT~Jana
