Sketchy Friday

Here it is, number 50! I can't believe it's a been almost a year's worth of these sketches already. It can be hard work sometimes, coming up with a sketch. I am so happy so many people find them useful! I appreciate all your kind words and I love seeing your take on the sketches! Dimensions:
  • Spring Moss 4-1/4x2--1/4
  • Plum Pudding 4-1/4x2-3/8
  • Lavender Moon Card Base 4-1/4x11
  • Six 3/4 inch circles
I just recently purchased Together Forever and coordinating wheel (which is no longer a wheel, but a background strip mounted on EZ Mount...). I love the floral images in this set. The mix of fonts is quite nice too.

I started by stamping 6 flowers on white paper and punched those out. Next I stamped the background paper and added the ribbon. Be sure to add the ribbon before the 6 circular elements, that way you have a guideline. I attached the flowers with pop dots then added my sentiment to the card base. Because of the punching and background stamping, this was quite a quick card to make.

Supplies: Stamps: Together Forever, Forever Flowers wheel Ink: Plum Pudding, Spring Moss Paper: White, Plum Pudding, Lavender Moon, Spring Moss Accessories, etc.: Grosgrain, pop dots

Very pretty---I love this set, but never got it....I guess I think I have enough flowers! But I love the shading it has. Great card, the color is striking!

Hello! I love visiting your blog to get ideas. I ALWAYS find something that inspires! I wanted you to know that even months after you design a challenge ... someone can be inspired to create! I thought I would share my link ... even though you will probably never even notice that I have left this comment!!! :D
