Sketch Challenge 8


What a wonderful day I had yesterday! I got to spend some much needed time back in my stamping place not only creating, but organizing and cleaning as well. It felt great and I felt accomplished! Woo hoo! I'm back again today playing with this sketch challenge from Create with Connie & Mary. I immediately knew I wanted to use the large blossom flower from the Flower Patch stamp set. That set was calling my name and soft colors were on my agenda!



I used the smaller flower from that set to create a fun background. And you knew I had to add a little sparkle by adding a Rhinestone to the center of each of those flowers. Ah yes, then came the lovely layered blossom. What a statement it makes! And by layered, I mean LAYERED -



Yep, I stamped and cut out the four different layers of this beautiful blossom! A little labor intensive, but oh so worth it! I added Dimensionals in between each layer to really give it depth. This card is so much prettier in person. I promise! LOVE it! Happy Stamping!
