Nature's Perfection Hello!

Greetings stampers!

Did you have a nice weekend?  Mine was busy getting ready for this weekend's upcoming workshop(s).  A lot of measuring and cutting going on!

But, I managed to put aside some time to make a card for today's post, which is also for two of my favorite weekly challenges:  Freshly Made Sketches and The Paper Players!

This week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge, FMS177, is a sketch challenge by Karren:

And this week's challenge for The Paper Players, PP236, is a Clean and Simple theme challenge, "Floral" from Ann Schach:

Here is my card:

Great job combining challenges! I love all the white space with the pop of color and the scoring is a fabulous touch. Gorgeous card! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches and The Paper Players.

Lovely card. I really like the elegance of the score lines!

What a great use of this sketch - the scored lines are simple and elegant, and they put the focus on the sweet flower. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

This card is simplicity at it's finest, Melanie. The texture of the scored lines is wonderful and draws the eye to your sweet, single bloom. So glad you joined us this week at The Paper Players!
