Wednesday Sketch Challenge

It was another fun Sketch Challenge over at SplitCoastStampers!!! I really like the layout of this one because I can use SO many of my smaller stamps in that center square. I added the scallop to the card because I felt it needed something more there and a ribbon or bow just didn't do it for me!!!

I got to finally play with my Stampin' Up! set "A Flower for All Seasons." I chose the tulips one because I thought a spring looking card went well with this layout!

I used the Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug folder on the white background. The next layer I had used the En Francais background with Always Artichoke ink. I stamped on some leaves from the "Petal Pizzazz" set and I stamped on some flowers from that same set using Pink Pirouette ink.

I colored the image in using markers and I sponged all the edges of every piece on this card!!

If you have time head on over there and join in the fun!

The words were done on the computer. It did take me a couple of printings until I got the font to fit in the circle punch. The easiest way to know if words fit is to have the size you want punched out on a scrap piece of paper. Lay it over the words and if they fit you're good to go. You can determine from there whether they need to be made bigger or smaller. Once I punched out the words and sponged the edge, I layered it on Pink Pirouette and then on an Always Artichoke scallop.

I added some half pearls to finish it off. It was basically an easy card to do!! I look forward to the Wednesday Sketch Challenge and I always hope that I have time to play. And luckily today I did. Now back to work!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today and have a Creative Day!
