Retrosketches #182

I normally try not to post twice in one day if I can help it,
but Sage and I are leaving after supper for a Mother/Daughter retreat at the Winkler Bible Camp.
The weather is gorgeous and we're looking forward to having a fabulous time together!

Anyway, since I'll be gone tomorrow, I thought I'd post my card,
so I can link it up to Retrosketches #182:

Isn't it a sweet sketch?

I was asked to make five birthday and one anniversary card
for our local nursing home (our church hosts the September birthdays),
so I used my MISTI to quickly create six cards
(five birthday and one anniversary)
using this sketch, my WPlus9 Watercolour Anemones stamp set
and my Zig Clean Colour Brush Markers.

So, I made five of these:

I stamped my sentiment with SSS's Big Scripty Sentiments.

And then I made one of these:

I coloured the markers onto the stamp and then spritzed it with water
before stamping.
This sentiment is from SSS's Congratulations stamp set.

Thanks for looking!
