Wishing you a Lovely birthday 28

Hi there! It's been awhile~I'm still here just not posting on my blog. I needed a birthday card for a dear friend so I decided to join along with this week's PTI Make It Mondays challenge where the challenge is to create a Pantone chip inspired card.
For the focal point, I stamped one of the pretty flowers from the PTI Vintage Linens stamp set:
Here's the pantone paint chip that I used to create one of the layered rectangles:
For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with this week's CAS(E) sketch challenge:
I've been practicing painting landscapes lately and have a few to share. The first one up was inspired by a lesson offered by Julie Gilbert Pollard: 
The next two paintings were inspired by lessons offered by Bill Inman:

I'm linking my paintings to the current Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
