My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing Card set

Today I broke out a 6x6 paper pad and along with an old sketch, I whipped up an entire set of cards! I have had this stack for a while and already made a few cards with it.  The My Mind's Eye Bluebell paper and accessories made a great set of masculine cards.

I did throw in a few flowers for a couple of less masculine cards.

MME The Sweetest Thing Bluebell 6x6 Paper & embellishments
SU Close to Cocoa & Not Quite Navy inks
Mixed Media Denium ink
Prima Seashore stamp set
CTMH Seaside Greetings

I used an old sketch for this card:

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:

(SU Close to Cocoa & Not Quite Navy are two of my oldest inks but I have refills!  In fact I had to refill the Close to Cocoa for this project)
