Thinking Of You

Today I'm sharing a card I made using some new-to-me stamps/inks/dies and this great sketch from CAS on Friday Challenge 183:

I love the Build-A-Flower: Columbine set from Altenew! It's absolutely gorgeous! My husband and I live in Colorado, and the Columbine is our state flower. July also happens to be the time of year when we see these beauties blooming in the mountain meadows and alongside the trails. They're stunning and so inspiring!

(Note: I took the above photo in July 2019 on the Arapaho Pass Trail---one of our favorites!)

Here's my creation:

...and a closer look...
