Sketch Card

I had planned on posting a card I made on Friday while I was doing a "quick tidy" of my stamp room before Mom came. "D" e-mailed me from Florida asking when I was posting a new card and I e-mailed her back to say that I would be posting soon. Well, I kind of spent too much time blog surfing (in between diaper changes, cleaning and getting lunch and snacks) and didn't get that card posted.

While blog surfing I found Amy Westerman's Blog (click on Amy's name to go to her blog). Every Sunday she posts a new sketch challenge so I printed them all out and decided to go with #7.

I have lots and lots of flowers (Primas) that I have been hoarding and I thought this was a perfect opportunity to use them (ok only 2 but that is a start right?). The ribbon I got last weekend with Amy at Michael's and that was what I used as my color inspiration. I cuttlebugged the celery cardstock with the swirls folder and the flowers and sentiment are from Simply Said. There is a rhinestone brad in the center of the flowers and I used stickles on the stamped flowers for a little "bling". I am really happy with how this card came together and it was really quick thanks to the sketch:)

You'll have to check back tomorrow to see what the card I made on Friday looks like.
