Freshly Made Sketches #229.....

Hello everyone: I have a card to share with you for the Freshly Made Sketches with a really fabulous sketch by Cindy H., here is my card.


This card if for my almost 18 year old granddaughter who's about to graduate High School and, like so many future graduates, it's a bit undecided of what to do. She is an accomplished Viola player, plays with the Crown Point High School Symphony Orchestra and also belongs to the Chamber Orchestra, she also is an amazing water colorist and swimmer, forgive me if I sound to much like a grandma but I'm so very proud of her and the wonderful young woman she has become.
This card is simple, the flower and flourish image is a die cut but I don't remember where I got it from, I apologize, this die was bought long before I decided to have a blog so I never bother to save the package or name.
I die cut it using Canson water color paper and I colored it with SU markers and the aqua painter, the Musical Notes  are from My Favorite Things and I die cut them with gold foil paper.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card. I hope my granddaughter realizes that the road ahead is open and wide, the sky is the limit when it comes to what an 18 year old can do, the important thing is to be happy doing what she loves.


Here is the sketch that inspired my card.

I changed the line for the floral flourish and the squares for circles and added a bit of bling with some Rhine Stones, I hope this is ok for this challenge.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
