Fabulous Florets Wednesday Sketch Challenge

 I kept the sketch pretty simple and clean.  I was going to add some words to it but when I got it all together I thought I would just leave it as it is and use the card for whatever occasion I need and write something on the inside instead.

This was a very fun sketch to play with.  I LOVE that big oval in the center and I can see myself making more cards using this layout.  

I have not used the Pool Party color much and I thought I would open up the pack of it that I bought last summer and play with it some more.  I wanted my card stock to match the decorative paper so that I why I went with the Pool Party color too.  

The decorative paper is from the Everyday Enchantment pack.  I've used almost all of the sheets in it except for the one I used here on this card.  I was surprised I let that little gem slip by.  It's SO pretty with the card stock!

The image is from the Fabulous Florets set. A set I have used a lot and still like very much.  

The flower was stamped using black StazOn and colored in using a blender pen and the Pool Party ink pad.  I also colored in the center of the flower using the blender pen and the Daffodil Delight ink pad. 

The layer marked in blue on the pattern was set in place using Dimensionals as was the oval and the cut out flower.  Yes, I did cut out the flower. In fact I stamped the larger flower at the same time, colored them both and cut both of them out but I ended up using the smaller one.  The larger one was WAY too big for that oval. 

It's a sweet and simple card and can be used for quite a few occasions.  I'm not sure what I will use it for but for now it's getting a protective sleeve and going in the file on the ledge and in a few weeks it will end up in one of the two drawers I have FULL of cards.  I'm going to be going through them soon.  We are having a HUGE garage sale and I am going to be putting them in there to try to get rid of some!!

So, to recap:  the card went together quickly, it was easy to make and fun to do!  If you have the time I highly recommend this layout!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
