thinking of you 16

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, February 14, 2018 @ 10:17 PM | ,

Today I'm joining along with the PTI 11th anniversary day 8 challenge where the challenge is a color challenge. I was inspired by the pretty color scheme shown below:
I created a greeting card featuring a double layered heat embossed pretty butterfly from the Life is Beautiful stamp set:
I embellished with a homemade flower that was die cut using a PTI Beautiful Blooms die along with a stitched on button:
For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge:


Up next is an 8" x 8" oil painting featuring a tuscan scene and was inspired by Ginger Cook. I'm entering this painting in the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Day 14:

I'm also linking to the Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Your card, with its pretty butterfly is lovely. Your painting reminded me of some of the lovely scenes we saw when my DH and I went on a 1-week hiking tour in Tuscany a couple of years ago. One day we hiked to a little walled village on a hill, and it had some beautiful doorways surrounded by flowers like your painting. Thank you for bringing that memory back!
