Wednesday Sketch Challenge

Another Wednesday is upon us. The first one for the month of March. Can you believe it's March already? I'm just shocked at how fast time flies. Hopefully it's spent doing things we like!

And speaking of things we like. I especially like the Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers. It's one of the things I look forward to in the middle of the week.

The sketch was pretty fun and simple. Well, simple for me.

I used the Stampin' Up! "Vintage Vogue" set this week. Or should I say "again" this week? I used it for last weeks Sketch Challenge too. I didn't catch that until I posted it in my gallery at SplitCoast. Oh well, it's a different sketch and different colors!

Once again I found myself cutting out flowers, leaves and this time even the letter "F". I know, I'm nuts! I liked cutting out the large flower but the smaller one was more touchy and after the second one I didn't want to cut out anymore but the card needed more. I had even tried using ribbon but no, it had to be flowers! SO I cut more flowers. Now I think I will make some cards with this set that don't require me to cut out little flowers and bunches of little leaves!!! I say that but you know me, I'll be cutting flowers and whining about it later! LOL

I LOVED using the new punch for the bottom part of the card. It's such a fun punch. It's a nice scallop with a bit of a lacy look to it allowing you to see through it to the background paper. And now that I'm looking at the card I'm thinking I should have done that same scallop on the top of that layer too.

Don't you love how Melon Mambo and Old Olive go together so well? I am OS loving those two colors together.

My decorative paper is from the Old Olive "Paper Patterns" package. I LOVE those packages! I have some in several other colors and have used them on my cards and projects.

I used the Dotted Swiss embossing folder on the background and sponged it in Old Olive.

There really isn't a lot to this card, it's all that cutting of the flowers that took time. But SO worth it. It's another card I actually like.

If you have time play with this sketch and see what you come up with. Check out the other posts to this sketch at SplitCoast. There is a lot of beautiful cards made using this layout.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
