cork flower for Freshly Made Sketches one year anniversary...

Happy birthday Freshly Made Sketches!  One whole year of fabulous sketches and terrifically inspiring cards.

The challenge for this week is to look back over the sketches this past year and choose a past sketch.  I chose sketch #22 which was from before my blogging time.

I am completely in love with Tui's cork flower she made in FMS #50 and took my inspiration from her card (which is amazing IMHO).

I made my card for my step-mother-in-law; she lives a fair distance from us and we only see her and my father-in-law once a year (usually around this time), but unfortunately this year they are unable to visit as her brother is very ill.  We wanted to send a card to her to let her know we are thinking of her during this difficult time and that she is loved and missed.

Here is the sketch picture I chose:
