Sketch 47: FLOWERS!


Happy Thursday, friends! I am sooooooooooo glad it's Thursday! It's sketch day....AND.... tomorrow's Friday! LOL! I don't know about you, but we need a weekend around here! :) I hope you are having a fabulous week, and I hope you have a little crafting time to join in the sketchy fun around here this weekend!

We've set up the DT sketch cards in a blog hop format, as suggested by one of our sketch followers and participants. What a GREAT idea! We hope that this helps keep things nice and organized for you. You are at the first stop on the hop. Hope you enjoy the view. ;)

I started with a kraft card base and added on a layer of Jillibean Soup Head of Cabbage patterned paper (the birdhouses!). I accented my scallops with Deep Yellow Kaisercraft Rhinestones. I also added a rhinestone in the "o" of my sentiment, from the May Unity store kit. Sorry the sentiment seems so hard to see. It's not that hard to see in real life! Yikes! I used the reverse side of this paper (the brown argyle-ish print) to run across the bottom of the main focal paper. Around the argyle is a length of Yellow Wrinkle Ribbon tied in a bow. I added a Brown Canvas Flower (back in stock shortly) to the center of the bow, and here is where I tried to get creative! I punched a bird (using an SU bird punch...not sure of the name??) from cardstock and added a mixture of Lemonade Yellow Fun Flock and Silver Ultrafine glitter for some soft, sparkly "feathers". The bird's wing is lined in some small Split Pea rhinestones to help him really stand out and shine.

Oh, what a fun sketch, Mandy!! I was able to pull out some great Basic Grey cupcake goodies that I ordered from Limelight a couple of months ago to showcase along with this sketch (and a ribbon and button loop flower I learned here a while back, too!). Thanks for a fun morning of papercrafting!
