Sweet Stampin Sketch






For my Guest Designer spot over at Sweet Stampin this week I've used a SU set called Fabulous Florets to feature.  Their  challenge this week is a sketch challenge and I know you'll love this wonderful sketch.  There's just so much you can do with this one!  They're being sponsored by Quixotie Paperie so be sure and head on over to Sweet Stampin and check out all the inspiration from the DT and the rules for the challenge.

Since blue is my favorite color, you get to see BLUE!!!  I used some blue cardstock from SU and some scraps of patterned paper.  The flowers were colored with Copics - and not a very good job of it I'm afraid - and then popped up on the green leaf base.  I just had to add that tiny blue butterfly as spring will be on it's way here soon........hopefully!!

Isn't this a great sketch!  Check out Sweet Stampin and enter the sketch challenge this week!


There's also a brand new challenge that I'd like to enter this in called Butterfly Challenges!  The theme this week is butterflies and flowers.  Be sure and stop by there and check it out.

Thanks for stopping by..................

Lynn, this is gorgeous! I love that blue flower..so striking. And, the little panel of blue and white polka dots is just an eye catcher. It's an outstanding creation.

Being a pink nut myself it is so nice to see a card done in another colour. This looks super Lynn and the addition of the little blue butterfly just finishes the sketch off nicely.
Thank you so much for fluttering by my new challenge. Hugs Mrs A. (Butterfly challenge).

This is so beautiful. I like this layout too, it looks like a picture frame at first glance, and your pretty flowers made me think of stained glass windows. I also caught that little b/fly perched to fly away, and what an awesome card for Mrs. A's Butterfly challenge. I'm working on one!!! TFS & hugs.
