Freshly Made Sketch #212


An ultra quick post for Freshly Made Sketches today:

I'm also entering this one into Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday challenge which is 'Thinking of You.' I figure if you're sending a card to someone 'Just Because', then you must be thinking of them! 

I used Stamping' Up's Flower Shop for the bloom and coloured it red as it reminds me of a poppy.  The leaves are from WMS' Simple Sprig. Yes I know - the petals aren't the right shape for a poppy and the leaves are nothing like a poppy either...but don't tell anyone....

Thanks for stopping,
