Flower Fest Sketch Challenge

I thought this weeks Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers was a lot of fun.  I did have some trouble trying to get the half circle right.  After I realized it was more than a half circle it seemed to go better.  I actually searched the cupboards for something round to trace.  I often use Tupperware lids but I grabbed my circle cutter and just made them with that.  Yes, "them".  I needed one for a border.  

I have loved using the "Flower Fest" set since the first day it came into my home.  

I stamped the flowers and leaves with VersaMark and then I embossed them with the white embossing  powder.  All of the flowers have raised centers.  I stamped an extra flower and cut out the centers.  I set them in place with Dimensionals.  I didn't add any words to this card so it can be used for several occasions. 

I can see myself using this sketch again.  It was a lot of fun.  If you have time, give this sketch a try.  And be sure to go over to SplitCoastStampers and see the other cards made using this sketch.  That is what I LOVE best about the Sketch Challenge.  Everyone gets the same layout and you get to see other people's take on it.  It is very fun to see all the ways this sketch was used!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
