Ninety-Seven!

Good afternoon! Here's this week's sketch, as I said last week, I made sure to go back to a horizontal orientation this week. Today's sketch is also really clean and simple. I know most of the I post sketches are, however this is even more so than usual. It essentially has 4 items on the card front. I decided to add some extras when making my card. First, I decided to use a textured card base instead of a smooth one. Second, I added buttons to each flower to make them more interesting. Third, I popped up the 2 biggest flowers to create a bit more depth. Never under-estimate the power of pop dots! Yesterday was Canada Day. It's sure nice to have a day off in the middle of the week. It's not so nice having to get ready for work at 6:30 after being at the festivities & fireworks until 12. We couldn't have had a better day, weather wise. It was a hot one! I know it's a long weekend for a lot you! I hope you all have a fabulous and safe holiday! If you happen to take part in the sketch, feel free to leave a link! Supplies: Stamps: Birthday Basics Ink: Rich Razzleberry Paper: Rich Razzleberry textured, Hawaii Papaya, Hello Sunshine, Thoroughly Modern DSP Accessories, etc.: buttons, pop dots, twine, flower dies
