Freshly Made Sketches 125

Hi Stampers! 

Today I have a card for this weeks challenge over on the Freshly Made Sketches blog.

Here's this week's sketch.  It is pretty basic so I had to think outside of the box to decide on how I was going to embellish on it.

First I decided on which Designer Series Paper I wanted to use, and from that I chose my color combo. I went with something bright and cheery - the Quatrefancy DSP!

I thought that a little bit of Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo would be nice on a day we are expecting more STUPID SNOW!

To make the flower, I stamped the image from the Simple Stems stamp set three times - once in Island Indigo, once in Melon Mambo, and one final time in Daffodil Delight.  Then I cut out the different layers of flowers.  I used my two-way glue pen to add some Dazzling Diamonds around each flower edge for extra sparkle.  I layered them with Dimensionals and added a Basic Rhinestone to the center.  The final step was to stamp the sentiment from the Gifts of Kindness stamp set in Melon Mambo.

  4. LOL, the stupid snow missed us and I really wanted a snow day to scrap! Love your colorful take on the sketch! I think Simple Stems might replace Secret Garden as my new fave set.
