Another First for Freshly Made Sketches.....

Hello and TGIF to you: Ever since I started this blog last December, besides learning a little something every day, I'm having a total blast participating in a bunch of challenges so, here I am again with another first, this time for Freshly Made Sketches. Here is my card.
This image is from an old Flourishes set called "On the Porch", I colored it with my SU write markers and the aqua painter. The little bird is from a retired SU set called "Scene in a Garden" and the background "wall" behind the chair is done with "Gorgeous Grunge".
I used one of the stamps on the retired "Day Dream Medallions" and stamped the image with Strawberry Slush, then died cut it with the matching Framelits.
Here is a close up of the image, I added a Candy Dot to the pillow to give it some dimension, I also stamped the little flowers with one of the stamps from another delightful SU retired set called "Furry Folk".
I hope you like this card, I've been having some Internet issues and it's been frustrating to be able to publish this post, to say the least. I've been trying since yesterday morning. I love my computer, I honestly don't understand at all how it works, all I want is for IT to work for me.
Here is the banner from Freshly Made Sketches that inspired this card.I want to thank you for visiting and for leaving me a comment. I read them all and I appreciate each and every word. Here is the list of materials I used to create this card. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you for your words Jen, I needed something for behind that chair so the Gorgeous Grunge was the perfect choice.

Kelly, having computer issues is the worst when you are trying to post on your blog. Hopefully this wont happen again.
I'm glad you liked the card, it was a triumph when this post finally went live.
