Touch of Nature

"One touch of nature makes the whole world kin." Isn't that lovely? That is a quote by William Shakespeare and it is also the theme and stamp set from Stampin' Up!

Today is Friday and that means that the Friday Sketchers challenge site has a new sketch challenge. I like the simplicity of this sketch and decided to use a nature theme. Below is the sketch layout I followed:

Card Recipe Ingredients:
Stamp: Stampin' Up! (Touch of Nature)
Patterned paper: Making Memories (Country Garden Collection)
Colored with Tombow markers and a wet brush.
Embellishments: Flowers from Prima Nursery Tales collection, Nestibilities die, Martha Stewart Border punch, Labels Four die, machine stitching, organza ribbon.

It is such a lovely day today. I hope it is where you are too and can take time to listen to the birds and smell the flowers.



  1. Lovely as usual! May I ask which nestabilty die you used, such a pretty shape...

  2. Jennifer, this is so beautiful and feminine! I love it!

  3. This is beautiful, I love the simple elegance of your card.

  4. Beautiful! Love the mellow blues!

  5. Such a lovely, "gentle" card Ms Jennifer...

  6. This is beautiful Jennifer! I have that set and have yet to use it! You have inspired me!!!

  7. This has such a lovely, gentle feeling to it. It's such a beautiful card. Your coloring, as always, is exceptional. I like the punched border and stitching.

  8. So sweet. Love the image and color choices.

  9. This is so lovely. The soft colors and that sweet bird are just perfect.
