Friday Sketchers/ Color throwdown


Good Evening! I had a chance sit and stamp today since my Husband and the kids went fishing. I decided to stay home and have a day off. I did this card for the Friday Sketch Challenge. http://fridaysketchersblog.blogspot.com. This also works for the Color Throwdown challenge. http://colorthrowdown.blogspot.com. I LOVE this sketch. I made this for my cousin, for her anniversary. I used the Bella birds DS paper from SU (retired), some pink pirouette CS (also retired), Chocolate Chip CS, and very vanilla CS. The flower stamp is from the Ever After stamp set and the sentiment is from the Sweet little sentiments Stamp set. i added 3 pink brads and a crocheted flower which is also retired in the pink. Wow talk about a retired card. I colored the image with my water color pencils. Well I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July. Thanks for stoppin by:)

Hi Steph, This is a beautiful card. I love the layout and the sentiment. SU sure has some nice paper. Do you do a lot of demonstrations? I have been going to one at an independent demonstrator home about once a month for the past 5 or 6 months. I always make an order like I am a hostess to get the deals. I am really hooked and it didn't take long. Thanks for following my blog.

Beautiful job Steph! I just love that DP, have it myself! Did you crochet your own flower?

Yes, it is nice sometime to just slip off and have a day totally to yourself to create something beautiful!
