Fabulous Florets Wednesday Sketch Challenge Card

WOW, when a holiday is at the beginning of a week I tend to forget what day of the week it actually is.  I thought the Sketch Challenge came early.  I'm so messed up on the days this week.  I have to keep telling myself "it's Wednesday, it's Wednesday, it's Wednesday"  LOL  And since it IS Wednesday it's time for this weeks fun Sketch Challenge.

My card was done using the "Fabulous Florets" stamp set.  I is a FABULOUS set. I have been having a lot of fun with it.  And I love how versatile it is too.  That is why I buy a lot of the sets I have.  I LOVE versatility in a stamp set!
The "Hello" is from the "Pocket full of Posies" digital suite.  It was from the "Avante-garde Collection DVD" that was offered in the latest mini catalog.  It was SO full of fun things.  The thing I like best about buying digital images is that I can make them any size I want. I like how the "hello" looks. It's a fun and refreshing new look.  
I also used the new "Lace Ribbon" border punch and the "Beautiful Wings" embosslits die.  I have used it so much it's almost wore out!  I wanted my butterflies to look exactly like the flower so what I did was I dragged my Calypso Coral ink pad over my Whisper White card stock and then punched out the butterflies.  I set them in place with Dimensionals.  The flower was also set in place with Dimensionals.  

I like how the card turned out and I can see myself using this layout again!  I can see myself making this same card again with different wording at the bottom.  I think the "Sincere Salutations" set would work well in that space!

If you have time play with this sketch.  And be sure to go to SplitCoastStampers and have a look at what the other stampers have done with this layout.  That is what makes these sketches so much fun.  Everyone has a different perspective on this layout.  You see some things and say "why didn't I think of that?" I do it all the time!!  LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
