"Going Long" Freshly Made Sketches #20

Today I took a little break from getting my tax stuff together.  I needed a little stamping therapy, so I decided to play along with the wonderful sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.   I had fun making this card, it has been a long time since I made a long card.  This card measures 6" x 3".   The color combo is a little out of my comfort zone; Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, and Twitterpated Designer Series Paper.   I pulled out one of my favorite flower stamp set, Greenhouse Garden.

Let me know what you think!

Thanks for stopping by,

*I sprayed the finished card with some Homemade Frost White Shimmer Mist which gave it a little shimmer.
